- 2.4 rubber queen mis shaped
Have exactly the same thing happen with my tubeless Rubber Queen 2.4, Rob (Conti) sent me it as a replacement for a diesel that I had a problem with (bead detached from sidewall). I felt like I wouldn’t send it back since I couldn’t be bothered to pack another one up and have ridden it for a year like this without dying. I’d rather have one without a wobble though!Posted 5 years agouwe-rMember
I have had grief with 2.2 folding X King recently (not black chilli). Running with tubes but even when pumped like a rock with big 2.5” tubes the tyre is spinning on the rim and shearing the valve. It has killed about 6 tubes and has now been thrown to the back of the shed in disgrace.
The Black chilli Montain King (2.4) bought at the same time and running the same tube on the same rim has no problem – Lovely tyre. I noted this had hand made in Germany on the Box. The cheaper X king did not.Posted 5 years agomessiahMember
I’ve managed to mis-shape one non UST 2.4 RQ but it had a very hard life before it happened. The UST one I have seems much more robust and got a hammering on cactus and rock strewn shuttled DH trails in Phoenix last year.Posted 5 years ago
I’ve also manage to cut/slice a few non UST sidewalls open. I really like the feel and weight of the non UST tyres though so it’s a risk I carry. For most of my riding they are the best tyres I have ever used, but if I was doing shuttles or planning to do a load of DH tomfoolery I would go with the UST’s or something tougher
Replaced no problem. Settled with a few emails to conti who said it does happen but its rare – not too sure on cause yet.
Anyway new 2.4 UST BC came in the post 2days later via wiggle
The people at nextdaytyres refused to admit there was a problem even saying it’s on his wheel builders bike now & there’s no issue.Posted 5 years agoNextDayTyresMember
Now, I don’t normally post on these forums, but we have sold a lot of rubber queens, certainly hundreds of the UST versions, only had one back for a buckle so far.
As I object to being called a ‘tit’ by Rick Banks above, especially as my kids look at this forum quite a lot I’ll just say that the tyre we got back from him in June was refunded in full. As we could see nothing wrong with it, my wheel builder snagged it and STILL has it on his own bike and runs true.
Still you just can’t please everybody I guess …Posted 5 years ago
A bit yeah
As soon as it was refunded i ordered a new one from NDT which was refunded – so went to wiggle instead just annoyed at the time
Suppose your lucky then I’ve had this problem again to which conti & wiggle said it’s a common problem or your not riding hard enough 😛
Also, the tyre i returned was so buckled it didn’t fit through the forks!!!Posted 5 years agoboxxer7Member
I had a 2.4 set of BC Tubeless UST jobs that did the same both front and rears, they got so bad I sent them back to Conti who replaced them, Ive since swapped to Scwalbe Hans Dampf, so far so good, i think i actually prefer they grip a bit better are far more predictable when leaning over, but theyre not quite as fast rolling.Posted 5 years agocolournoiseSubscriber
Running a 2.2 RQ UST up front and it’s been tough as nails. Originally posted it with an X King 2.2 Protection running tubeless on the rear but that deformed on its first ride. Conti replaced it no questions and did say they’d seen a few tyres doing it. The sidewalls of the new X King they sent me felt much stronger even before being fitted and has been fine to date. Guessing they had a bad batch of tyres come out of the German factory?Posted 5 years agoAndyPaiceMember
I’ve had 4 no. 2.4 ist rubber queens fail now, each lasted for about 2 months of twice a week riding. Failed on the bead each time developing a large bulge in the tyre. Don’t trust them now as they’ve all failed mid ride causing me to cut short. Shame as they were great tyres while they worked!Posted 5 years ago
