    If it's a Moose bib I would say reach behind his neck and untie the bow knot. If it is a Bib Mousse, that's different. Bib is short for Bibendum, the Michelin mascot, Mousse (not moose) is the foam

    product whose tiny closed cell bubbles are

    filled with nitrogen. It replaces tubes so flats are a thing of the past in extreme enduro. Typically they would not be changed on the trail as they are very durable and racers will replace them before they degrade to the point of failure.

    Thanks for the lesson David! :)

    I posted this a while back just as a placeholder for the forum. I will going to delete it but being that you added such useful info, I will leave it for people to read in the future. Thanks! :)

    No thanks.  We watched a local guy at the Hanging Limb ride use a hack saw to remove one and then he just put a new tube and tire back on his bike.
