Dumb ?

Why do I have a bead lock on the front tire?

Try using the front brake when tire pressure is low, and you will find out! The valve stem will dissappear or rip off the tube, making the tire a btch to get off, or leaving the tube unrepairable. Not a huge problem unless your 50 miles from nowhere!:thumbsup:

I was just wondering that myself when I changed my tire last week. Duh...

Because it looks so pretty.

Or just get a front flat tire and you'll find out real quick :thumbsup:

Just to make your life miserable while changing a front tire. You will be glad you have it when you need it like flat, low pressure, heavy braking on pavement, etc..
