Gives you faith in the company though….they could have put out an 80% product a long time ago but they obviously want it to be 100%. I trust it’ll be out asap and really good when it happens.

Smart? Two thumbs on a single spot? Just say no. Come on, learn the palm roll method, no zip ties, and it feels better in a massage :wink:

And if you go around the wheel making sure that the tire is in the groove of the rim, I can sometimes get enough slack to pop that tire right on.

I was on an organized ‘group experience’ ride and a +1, and someone flatted. Everyone freaked out because no one apparently had tire levers yet had spare tubes. I pulled the wheel off, popped the tire off, swept the tire and had the new tube installed in a few minutes, and everyone gathered around, shocked that anyone could do that without tools. :roll_eyes: ‘Strong hands’? Natures perfect tool…

But it takes some time to build up the callouses to do a few of them at a time. I was working at a bike shop at the time, and was able to do most changes without tools. :person_shrugging:

We’re definitely off topic for memes at this point, as somebody who can also change tyres with no tools but has also owned and used the Schwalbe Marathons pictured in the meme, I can tell you that for those particular tyres a zip tie is highly useful, along with metal levers, strong calloused thumbs and a colourful vocabulary!

Mind you this was quite a few years ago when road tubeless wasn’t a thing and so rims didn’t have the centre channel. I do remember worrying what would happen if I punctured, but luckily those tyres used to get me >5000 miles without problems and I’d normally end up changing them because they were squared off not because they had holes in.

But, if you don’t try, you can’t win!! 🫨🫨🫨

Not technically a joke but I can imagine the meme gods having fun with this. I love that in the cover shot, the swimmer is using cycling shoes with cleats. Hmmm …. triathlon cheat?
