The last thing you want to do to a tubeless, tubeless-ready or any tire is damage the bead while mounting it to a rim. With tire prices what they are today, that could be a very costly goof. Uncle Dick’s Bead Slip
is a new product made in Milwaukee that, once applied to the bead, makes for a slippery and simple installation. The company claims that in addition to making the mounting process easier, once inflated, the tire beads to the rim way easier than a dry tire.
A 2.7 ounce tin costs $19.99 by clicking here.
The company also offers a $7.99 ten-pack of brushes
for even easier application of the Bead Slip.
