tire

Just a quick tip that some of you may have already known about.

Yes you can use a little compressor to seat the bead on your tires. If the tire doesn't have a good contact with the wheel, a ratchet strap around the tread will compress the tire so that it has a good seal. A few pounds of air will force the tire into a really good contact and a short time later the beads will pop into place. We did three tires with the compressor shown, two needed the strap and it worked perfectly both times. Would have done a fourth tire, but it didn't arrive. Shown is a Dunlop TT93 rear tire that is making a name for itself on these little cycles.
