Questions

soren

Hi Tartybikes, I have recently ground my rim and have had some problems removing and re-fitting tires as they leave behind gunk and dust from the bead rubbing against the grind. The brakes have now lost all of the bite, hold, and sound. I've tried prep pads, bike cleaner, and blasting the rim with a hose but I can't seem to get it off. My pads are square as well. Is there. a way to get tire gunk off rims without re-grinding them? Thanks! -soren

Hi Soren!
Unfortunately, we're yet to find a decent way of removing that release agent/tyre gunk from rims, sorry. After some use it usually wears off, but we typically find the only consistent solution is to give a fresh light grind.
This is why we always recommend grinding your rims with your tyres deflated but still on the rim - as long as you're careful you won't catch the tyres, and you won't end up with release agent hampering performance again.
If you get a puncture mid-ride, taking your tyre on/off from the same side and trying your best to avoid as much tyre and rim contact as possible is the way to go.
Apologies we can't be more help!
