IN­STALLING A MOUSSE US­ING HAND TOOLS

WITH METZELER/PIRELLI’S DOUG SCHOPINSKY

Dirt Rider - - Dr. Dirt - STORY BY SEAN KLINGER • PHO­TOS BY STEPHEN POT­TER

Whether you are a sea­soned pro or a novice at chang­ing tires, in­stalling a mousse tire in­sert rather than a nor­mal tube can throw a pretty big wrench into the mix. Fly­ing tire irons, hands cov­ered in lube, and lots of curs­ing are the usual ac­com­pa­ni­ments to try­ing to get mousses into a tire and on a rim. But Doug Schopinsky of Metzeler/pirelli as­sures us that the tech­nique you use is way more im­por­tant than the di­am­e­ter of your bi­ceps.
