Can't seat my bib mousse


I just installed bib mousse inserts for the first time in my TE 510. The rear tire seated fine, but I cannot get the front to seat properly.

it has about 5 inches on each side of the tire, at opposite sides of the rim where the bead will not seat (it is too far in).

Of course I have tried with tools and multiple people. And I have bounced it on concrete, and spent an hour in a parking lot wheeling and hitting curbs to try to get it to come out. No luck.

Any other suggestions? Do i just need to ride on it more?



I never installed those, but maybe you can use a rubber tipped air nozzle to put air in the tire?
