- Exploding (and i mean exploding) folding Maxxis Advantage off Stans No tubes
Perhaps worse with the wider tyres??. Been using a variety of Maxxis tyres on my Stans flow rims for a few years, all folding bead standard non tubless tyres (running tubless). No problems but only 2,25
All used tyres.
Used Minions High rollers Advantage and Ardent. No problems so far……….Posted 4 years ago
Also used balloon spec 2.3 Bontrager xr4 and various others.
What pressure were you using?
I had my second outing on my tubeless Stans Flow EX wheelset with a pre used Maxxis folding advantage 2.4 tyre on the front (which I had on my tubed Freedoms for 2 years) and after a fast twisty DH section I walked the bike up a hill and then when stationary, BOOM the front tyre blew off the rim.
I reckon the flexi pre-used tyre is at fault. My brand new Hans Dampf on the rear is fine (tho folding).
Any ideas ? I may just buy another folding DampfPosted 4 years ago
Just to answer your question Northcountryboy, I was running 29 psi in the front as specified by stans for my weight, so not mega low or over pressure.
Been on another 20km ride today with the tube still in the front, the Dampf on the rear is holding fine even after some edge impacts and rooty sections. I will swap out the Advantage for one of those and thinking about it , the Dampft holds its shape a lot better when off the bike than the maxxis did , which as Nosedive said do seem floppy by comparison.
I will still keep a tube in my backpack for emergencies tho.

I had problems with Schwalbe tyres doing this on a Podium rim.
Getting engaged in an in depth conversation with LBS which left me out of my depth recently, Schwalbe have changed their compound now as there were issues with the sidewalls when being used tubeless. The new ones that have just cost me a hundred quid have some new mottley sidewalls due to the new compounds.
If only I wasn’t running 17 year old wheels I might notice the difference 😀Posted 4 years ago
