A few years ago I bought a set of Mr. Tuffy tire liners in the appropriate size for 700-23. Recently came across them and decided to install.
Are you ****ing kidding me?
So i searched out all the info I could find on here--the only method that sounds as though it might work is contact cement--basically you make a row of cement dots around the middle of the inside of the tire and paint one side of the Tuffy with the cement and then mate them up.
However, I'm wondering if the 700-23 tire isn't just TOO narrow for ANYTHING to work. I think the contact cement guy was talking about mtb tires.
Has anybody successfully installed these buggers in a 700-23 and is willing to testify regarding his/her prowess in this matter?
Unless I know that it's at least possible, I'm not going to waste any more time on them . .
And no, I would never buy them again--I have some Panaracer liners on order . . .
I also bought a roll of gorilla tape. Several people have said that it "should work" as a tire liner, but didn't see anybody who actually did it. If I wanted to go this route, should I put the tape strip on the tube or try to cram it into the tire?
Also i have a set of Gatorhardshells in the mail and am now convinced that better tires are the way to go. The liners are for use with some cheap tires that I already have--stocked up on a ridiculously low price and now wish I hadn't.
Because of my own situation and location, a flat tire would be inconceivably horrible (or at least very inconvenient), to be avoided at all costs! Thanks for your help.
