Are you asking about removing the bearing? If so, no; PVC will not stand up to the stress.On the bearings could you use 3/4" or 1" PVC/ Cu tubing with cap. Not sure of size but maybe even the female end of a coupler would be similar to outer diameter?
Yeah, that's probably some High Tech lube and sealer type **** some shop (or genius) used when installing the tire.Back again, finally got some tire irons and got the tire off and the inside of rim had a lot of hard goo dried into it.
That ^ is worth saying twice.Don't ride too aggressively on new tires until you get the treads roughed up a bit. They can be a bit slippery when new.
No need to hear a pop.Finally got the new tire on today, still not hearing the "pop"
As much work that you've done and amount of slippery you've got on it from previous attempts it might not pop this time. But if you keep it long enough to need another, I'd bet it will. Hopefully you are good to go now if it now feels okay and better yet, if it looks okay. Plus, they all don't pop. If you watched it though, you might have seen it sneak in rather than pop.still not hearing the "pop"
