How many tubes does it take you to glue a tub?
Im happy with the method I follow for gluing my tubs with Mastik one.
4 road tires glued, very difficult to get off. Gluing my CX tires on now.
Per wheel/tire, starting with whatever left-over crap is on the rim (chunks removed), it takes me about 2.5 tubes to glue on the tire
1 tube = 2 thin layers on the rim
almost 1 tube = 2 layers on the basetape of the tire
a little more than .5 of a tube as the last tacky layer on the rim to put the puppy on.
How many tube equivalents does it take you for a single tire start to finish?
