29er tubeless options
Right then, I’ve demo’d a tallboy and I love it. Got some others lined up but I’m pretty sold on a 29er FS bike soon. I want to run tubeless but there don’t seem to be as many options out there so looking for the collective’s advice. I want to run 2.3 and 2.4 tyres and I weigh 17st so the Hope Hoops with Crest looks to be too flimsy and unable to run the wider tyres. Anyone else actually running wider tyres on 29er crests and are there any other options. If need be I’ll go ghetto but would rather not.Posted 6 years agotazzymtbMember
dreaded blow-off at higher than 50 psi (It happened twice on my Crests).
WTF were you doing pumping tyres that high on any stans system, they’re not built for it. It clearly gives you the max pressures on rim for the tyre width and it you are putting that much air in a tyre why bother with a tubeless set up in the first place 😆Posted 6 years ago
simonm, yeah they do. It’s just that the Stans site has max rider weights and tyre size and given that I break everything anyways, I don’t want any warranty or insurance get out clauses.Posted 6 years ago
” So Mr Devs, you want to claim on your income protection, why?” “Er cos I’m crippled and can’t work anymore, that’s why I took it out me being all self employed and all that you see?”
“Hmmmm, says here that your accident was due to riding an oversized tyre on a rim that is rated for a man 55 lbs lighter than your weight, can you explain that?”
“Bloke on STW said it was fine and that these ratings are only for people with hang ups for that kind of thing, they’re not there for any other reason, I mean what do manufacturers know?”
“Can I give you the number of the Big Issue head office?”
