Bead setting

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The first pair of Pirelli TLR's I had were a little tight going on the Pro 37's as well, but I put them in an old pillow case and threw them in the dryer for about 10 mins to warm up and then they went right on. It was pretty cool out when I was trying to mount them. Everything else has been a breeze.

Just have this fear of my carbon wheels exploding if all 140psi somehow goes blasting into the tire at once. I suppose the reality here is that the tire would just blow off the rim.
The volume of a 28c tire is more than double the 1.15L air shot, so at 140 PSI in the can, you can’t inflate the tire to 72.5- there’s not enough air. When you add in the air that leaks before the tire seats, no risk at all.

My favourite tubeless tyre for the past couple years has been Panaracer GravelKing Plus TLC. I can mount this tyre with my bare hands grrr...and a track pump.
