    Sew up rim glue question

    Anybody use contact cement to mount sew ups?
    Got plenty of contact, but the rim cement I have is now gelled extra firm. Think it will work?
    It breaks down with a little lacquer thinner, and a light coat would probably break loose with just pulling on it.
    What does anyone think?

    I've given up on glue/cements finally.
    I like the tufo tape. easy, quick, no drying time.

    The tape works great. "Gorilla Glue" is a good hardware store subsitute for tire glue.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    I can't see using gorilla glue in this application.
    Don't get me wrong, I love the stuff.
    the surface needs to be damp and then the glue would expand uncontrollably over the rim.
    Oh, and peeling the gorilla glue off of the rim would be a nightmare for me.

    Tape boys.
    Listen to the blonde on this one.

    I agree on the gorillia glue sure it would hold, but getting it off????
    So how does this tape come off.? If its strong enough to hold how does it release?

    Tape is ok, but the glue has the advantage of mind numbing hallucinigenic (sp?) fumes.
