Michelin Bib Mousse, my favorite thing to do…

Michelin Bib Mousse are great for preventing flats but a pain to install. I was happy to learn there is a tire service to mount these things during the rally. The first two we installed were rears, one on the suggested 2.5″ rim, the other on a 2.15 rim. The smaller rim combined with a rim lock was not easy, made me want to never have to do it again. Rob and I mounted a front the other day, with plenty of lube and no beed lock it was surprisingly easy.

    Hi
    Based on a number of years using Bibs in the Australian Safari, we never use one rim lock in the rear tyre due to a balance issue. The preference is too never use rimlocks, but if you do then use 2 and have them spaced so as to counterbalance each other. Also if you are using the desert bib (140) then you should use the 2.50 rim as this is what it was designed for.
    Good luck
    Don
