Hey, I was just wondering if anyone knows any tricks to getting bicycle tubing onto wooden staffs? Do I need to use like vaseline to help? The piece I'm trying to put on is onto a 1" diameter staff, that should fit, right? First time trying inner tube out, seems like a pain in the ass to put on, anyone plz help!!

bike tubings are like friendships: if you want to wrap either around a wooden pole, you must first warm it up first. pliable is the way wink

reviving this old thread with a question - how would one heat the tubing safely and effectively to get it over the dowel?

confused what is a 'lazer'?

that is actually a follicle growth dehumidification device (with added seramide enhancers and vitamin HP7+ intensifiers) - or at least that's what the scientist on the advert said...

I'm h aving one hell of a time getting this stupid inner tube over the staff. can someone walk me though the process? I'm obviously doing something wrong.



and on a four foot staff, how much of the center area do you want to cover with inner tube?

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.
