|One popped bead...|
This is, to use my son Thom's favourite phrase, a non-trivial task - motorcycle tyre beads are not meant to break easily. But following Grant's coaching, we were patient, taking an incremental approach and just the right amount of Fairy Liquid (the bikers' tyre-removal lubricant of choice) we did the job in the morning sunlight. Who'd-a thought it, but we're turning into proper bikers.
The tools - as recommended - are BeadPro bead breakers, and Buzzetti trye levers. Great kit.
Another great piece of design is the Jetboil. Crucial for a different reason, it's going to ensure the early morning boost we'll both need for a happy start to each day! :)
Today we had our first JB cuppa.
