|Tube stuck to tire?||PseuZQ|
Dec 23, 2002 10:26 AM
|Went to fix front flat yesterday, and for some reason I had a very hard time getting the tube out of the tire...then I realized it was stuck -- almost fused -- to the tire. I eventually got it out, but it took *way* longer than I would have liked.
Tire: Open Corsa; Tube: Performance; Wheels: Vector Comps.
I rode in the rain last weekend. There was some water in the rims. I'm guessing this was a factor. If so, what's the best way to make sure there's no water in there post ride? Or, is this a tire issue?

|use of moderate talcum powder on tube when changing next puncture makes next change easier. don't breathe the stuff, though--it's a carcinogen (sp?).
this has happened to me when i'm riding long distances in heat, or when the tube's been in there for a long time.
to help wheels drain water, hang them and rotate 45* every couple hours. the only way to really get them dry and clean is to remove the tires, tubes, and rim strips, and do it right. have i ever done this? no.
riding in rain means you need to replace rim tape more often, btw.

|At least not any more than any other fine powder that can cause silicosis if you inhale A LOT of the dust. Do you think that baby powder would be carcinogenic?|
