I was given 50 solid rubber bicycle tires a few years ago. They have no air and ride like shit, but I like them because I cannot stand punctures. I can literally ride over glass and nails now without a worry.
Anyway, I'm still on the first 2 after several years so I need a way to preserve 48 solid rubber tires for lets say 50 years so I have a lifetime supply. I know to keep them out of the sun and heat, but is there anything else I can do to preserve them long term? Would submerging them in water keep the ozone away or ruin the rubber?
This thread is either the product of AI, drugs, or some sort of dog whistle as it is easily the dumbest fucking thread I have seen in my almost 20 years of coming to this shit hole website. It's fucking rubber. Stop being an African hoarder.
have a nice day you brainwashed boomers. if you dont hoard precious materials now you are going to end up paying 100$ for synthetic garbage that lasts 1 month by the year 2030 with all the dystopian planned obscelence bullshit the billionare class has planned for us.
Shity bike tiresare not "precious materials", try to sell all but 10 of them.
Keep them in a gigantic ziploc.
>some sort of dog whistle
I would get a large scale 3d printer and make cases that fit snugly to keep the ozone level minimal.
try to sell them to your local non commercial bike shop
if not, craigslist free section
The first thing to know about rubber degradation is that it's related to UV and you need to balance humidity so it isn't too dry or wet.
You'll need to carefully cut each tire so you have a long segment of rubber and then grab one end and start shoving it deep up your ass. Stupid hoarder.
idiot wef lobbyists will chop the branch these monkeys perch on
they are trying to continue 19th century solutions to 21st century problems
the great reset will be preceded by the great escape
thought I was on PrepHole for a moment
Keep them in Formol 10%
What size diameter of solid tubes? Will they fit into a round trash can with a lid or a barrel nicely?
Make a trolly?
Ive bought some decades old NOS rubber car parts that looked pretty good in sealed plastic bags. Maybe try that, maybe the vacuum bag variety
This man would ride a pennyfarthing because he's scared the WEF is going to pull the plug on bike chains.
Looks like something you can keep on using by keep cutting grooves yourselves. You will be on the same set until the 5th bike broke and your bones are too old for airless tire without suspension.
As for the other 24 sets, its excessive even for motorsports.
Bro you realize they make tires that work fine over glass, right? Czech out the Panaracer SK+, I've literally popped multiple beer bottles under my wheels before with no issue. Glass just isn't an issue, and they'll ride SO much better than solid rubber. And as said, if you're really going to go down this route I'd just have fun with tread patterns until you find something you like.
Go to therapy for your hoarding tendencies before it ruins your life.
Good tyres, road these over the sharpest of lava rocks all day long
is this iceland?
Yes, I recommend riding to maelifell picrel
keep them under argon
use those vacuum bags that people put tons of clothes in
nobody suggested a liquid nitrogen treatment?
Anon, that s quite pricy, espeshaly for some rubber.
Seal them in Glycerin. 3d resin prints that mix badly with oxygen are recommended to be submerged in glycerin for curing, so I assume glycerin would keep these rubber tubes pretty good for a long ass while as long as it was sealed air tight.
Put a new pair on your bike. Sell the remaining 46 now. Ride the new pair for x years, then buy 2 new ones.
The only intelligent answer. Hoarding is for losers, even the Bible says so.
Cut you have long rubber tubes. Use these to beat on homeless people or your wife and kids without leaving marks
Sell them. Put money in index fund. Use gains to buy new tire when needed.
>putting money in the market when the market is on the verge of catastrophic collapse
put it in VIX
>I was given 50 solid rubber bicycle tires
Give them back Jamal.
Sell them and invest the money in gold so you can rebuy new ones later
