Rumour has it that tubeless tyres are much more pinch-resistant than tyre with inner tubes... So why is it that I can go for months without a pinch flat on a tubed tyre, but my recent experiments with tubeless have written-off a steady stream of tyres in fairly short order? :-/
I've totaled a 2.1 Maxxis Minion LUST, a 2.1 Maxxis Advantage LUST, and last night a 2.25 Smorgasbord. All running at 40-50psi. Each time the hole in the tread seals ok, but there's a second hole in the sidewall, hard against the bead, which will only seal enough get home, no more.
Bike = On One 456 with Rohloff hub, XM819 rim and Thudbuster seat post, rider 88kg. Am I just clumsy?
