just attempted to slime my own tires and was successful until i tried to put back the tire onto the rims. in doing so the fabric that holds the bead in place separated and now i need a new tire.
how do i prevent this problem from occurring again?
i had only worked on this particular tire 3 times in the past. is it that the tire was just crappy (it came stock on a new bike)? it was a continental ultra sport 700x23c. or do i just not know how to put the tire back onto the rim? seems that the act of trying to get the final few inches of the tire on the rim rubbed the fabric against the rim causing it to fray and rip.
any advice is much appreciated.
sorry if this has already been posted. the search wasn't working.
