I’ve never run bibs before, but I recently bought a used bike with one installed the rear and thought I’d throw on a new tire over the weekend. After wrestling that SOB off the rim, I was treated to a pile of degraded foam rubber. Looks like the previous owner didn’t bother to lube the bib before installing it. Didn’t even bother to install a rim strip or duct tape the rim either. Bummer…

Oh well, new one on the way.
