Never herd of grease before dontknow (id be worried it may cause problems with the rubber of the tube)

Thats going to be fun to change on the side of a track, messy messy messy :D :D

Mate uses talcom powder and Paul450 does to I think, I don't bother.

yep i use baby powder i reckon it makes the tube and tyre go on easier (but maybe i am getting the placebo effect) I just put it everywhere just use the cheap junky stuff or if your tube is sensative i think johnson and johnson do one for sensative skin haha bootyshake

Grease would be a very bad idea, it will make dirt and crap stick to it. You shouldn't use grease anywhere that isn't sealed from dust and dirt.

Talcum powder is the go.

On large industrial stuff that we want to lubricate, but can't keep away from dust and dirt, we use graphite powder.

Interesting, never seen that before.
I noticed he did use rubber grease(so tube should be ok)
Hope he carries some hand wash.

Interesting opinions.
Have a look at the sticky shit in there after using talcum powder, leave that for your sphincter :o

Grab some rubber grease, fit tube as you would a mousse tube, you wont get any on the bead or rimlock.

If you dont like that idea, put em in with nothing but air.

Just my opinion dontknow
