Tubular Disk Wheel(3 posts)

I just got a used rear disk wheel.I have a Silca Pista Pump that I put a Silca adapter chuck for disk wheels to pump air in the cut out. I can't get the tire pumped up. I have held the adapter on the presta valve very tighly and it still doesn't work. I am putting a new tubular tire on and it can be pumped up with my regular pump off the rim. Any suggestions?

The silca chuck should work. It's usually a two person job. If the new tire doesn't work, I'm stumped.

hold on to the chuck with one hand, pump with the other, you need to push down and give it pressure than pump away up to 140 psi, which disc are you using? - Time Trial Racing and Training
