A patch will never stick to a greasy tube.

Great video, I've watched it a few times.  I took your advice and tried using the red rubber grease for the tubes instead of talcum powder.  A few thoughts and questions: 1. it creates a mess, a huge mess, so being very precise and well prepped is essential, you must have lots of rags and a good work space. 2. spooning the tire on with the rubber grease is much easier than with talcum powder. 3. after a few days of riding a guy parked near me noticed that I had oil leaking from the rims.  it was the grease that had been heated and slipped out of the bead as I rode around.  Is this normal and expected? 4. what do you do if you get a puncture and need to repair the tire on the trail/road?  Is there a way to effectively get the grease off of the tube where you need to adhere a patch? 5. I found that the wheel weights I needed to add to balance the wheel were very hard to stick to the rim after the grease smeared across the area. Is there a good way to degrease the rim of the rubber grease? Beyond those questions and observations is there anything additional you would add to your video that you didn't already cover?  You made a great video please do more!  I would love to see more about the following given your experience: *How to carry tools for trail riding *Riding in sand at speed and how to improve *adding luggage to a KTM 350/500 - racks, bags and considerations *Tools you carry when on the road - how to minimize weight and maximize utility

A pinch flat is caused by the tire contacting the rim during a hard impact with a trail obstacle ,pinching the tube in between. Too low tire pressure is the reason. That's why heavy tubes are more resistant to a pinch flat. A thicker tube can withstand the contact better.

aaaah what about your brake disc when breaking the bead?

I never thought about greasing the tube. Great advice, thanks!

give somebody with less experience a tub of grease and a tyre to fit (in a forest). the grease is going to be all over the bike, his clothes, gloves, boots . all over his hands. is it April fools day?? and did you have a box of rags and some degreaser off camera ?? I think this video has been heavily edited

This is a GREAT way to change a tire. That being said, I just had my first opportunity to change a tire that had been mounted with this method. I used Ru-Glyde as the rubber lubricant upon initial installation. I had a terrible time getting the tire off the rim to change the tire. The lubricant had dried and it was extremely difficult to break the bead and get the tire off the rim. I ended up pinching the tube with one of my tire irons. It may have been because I used the Ru-Glyde instead of the tire "grease" mentioned here. I definitely recommend this method but it might be best to use the more viscous lube that Adam uses.
