How to Re-glue Ride Pre-glued Tyres
6 June 2013
Ride provide advice on how to bullet proof your pre-glued tyres.
When we interviewed Ludo from Ride yesterday he spoke about the quality control issues with Ride pre-glued tyres and recommended re-gluing them. We asked him to clarify and he very helpfully, and very promptly, provided this photo and clarification.
- Push down on the tyre wall as shown by the finger in the top right of the photo
- Starting where you are pushing down - run a bead of glue around the rim where the platic rim meets the tyre
- Continue around the tyre - pushing and gluing - until the entire rim of the tyre has been re-glued
- You can see the new glue where the rim meets the rubber (shiny circle 2-3mm wide in the photo)
Warning! Be very careful when pushing down on the tyre wall that glue doesn't run over the tyre wall and onto the surface of the tyre. If this happens then let it dry and lightly sand it off.
