converted to tubeless….again!!
i think the only good thing about tubeless, is the fact you can run lower presures and not get pinch flats, apart from that i cant see the point, theres no difference in weight, i use latex tubes, 135gr each, run them for nearly a year, only had one puncture, big shard of glass, which btw was easily fixed with a park super patch in 5 mins, and when i change tyres i dont have all the bother of messing about with the fluid, and sealing the tyres, too many people think its the holy grail, i know just as many people who still use tubes, you still need tubes when you run tubeless, just incase you get a bad puncture on the trail, all i carry is two boxes of park super patches job done, and because i dont need to run my tyres at silly low presures that advantage doesnt apply to me, so from my point of view i honestly cant see the point, but like most things its each to their own lol, some people think they have to run tubeless to keep up with the crowd, overated if you ask me, i was running tubes over 20yrs ago ive not died yet, so if it aint broke dont fix it, the only place i can see a real advantage is when your doing alot of downhill or you like running low presures, apart from that cant see the point.Posted 4 years agoRob_SMember
Pootling down the Trans Pennine Trail a few weeks ago. Heard a hissing noise accompanied by a lovely catherine wheel effect of sealant spraying out of the front tyre for a few seconds. The hissing and the spray stopped and I carried on my way!
That’s why I run tubeless.Posted 4 years ago
