So, fixing my third pinch puncture in as many rides I was contemplating the move to tubeless. Reasons I haven't done before is I was a serial tyre changer depending on conditions and just didn't want all the faff.
Now I've switched to 29er I have one set (Rocket Rons) which despite pumping up to 40psi on the rear (giving crap traction on the ups) I still pinched on cwmcarns descent.
But a question, so I understand that being tubeless means you can run lower pressures so you don't pinch a tube but, does that mean your actually more likely to damage rims? So if I pinch at 40psi with a tube in this scenario, if I'd been tubeless at 25psi would I be looking at replacing a rim?
Am I talking nonsense?
