Question about Cycling
Using a technique for setting the bead on tubeless tires, i have had a little success, but some wheels are a real pain to set beads on. Anyway, the technique is to get the tube into the tire (which is ready to be seated) and inflate it just a little bit. Don't screw the collar nut onto the valve stem but leave it off for now. Now pinch together the beads of the tire and get them to sink under the tube and into the groove that runs in the middle of the rim. When the beads are down in there, then pump away and seriously go after it; the faster you can get air in there the better. Over inflate, but not more than you feel comfortable with: i have gone as far as 20psi over recommended pressure. The last ditch effort, if all else fails, is rolling the bead into place manually with your thumbs and some elbow grease.
