Attention: Tubular tires should be professionally fixed to rims using special contact cement!
As a test, first fit the tire without the contact cement (4-8). Check the valve length, using an extender if necessary. Recommendation: Fitting the tire on the rim beforehand using light pressure facilitates later permanent fixing.
Tire: Evenly coat the protective tape with a layer of contact cement (3) and let it dry for at least 6 hours.
New rim: Remove grease and if necessary roughen the rim well with fine sandpaper (1). Follow the rim manufacturer’s instructions! Evenly apply a layer of contact cement to the rim and let it dry for at least 6 hours! (2).
Used rim: Examine the existing contact cement layer. An even and intact contact cement layer can be re-used. If the layer is very uneven, completely remove all remnants of the contact cement from the rim and apply new cement.
Apply a fresh layer of contact cement to the rim (2). Immediately fit the tire. Insert the valve. Pull the tire as firmly as possible, so that the final section of tire slips over the edge of the rim in an easy and controlled manner (4-7). Slightly inflate the tire and center its position. The edge of the protective tape serves as orientation (8). Inflate to approx. 9 Bar and push down on the whole of the tire’s circumference using your full bodyweight. Clean off any remnants of contact cement from the rim braking surface.
Important: Leave the assembly to rest under pressure for at least 24 hours! Check tires regularly. Never ride on tires with a damaged or loose protective tape.
