- I really hate Stan's notubes rims
Not really blaming – Now the tyre beads have stretched I can mount them without levers without any issues. They still wont seal against the rim for any period of time, even after I’ve tried to seat them with what is basically a compressor! That’s fit, not technique.
Some tyre rim combinations are just harder than others.Posted 4 years agowinchMember
Schwalbes broke all the spoons in the house until I realised it was an exercise in futility
Of course, there was once a problem with schwalbe tyres and stans rim
Kenda SB8s were never, ever going to fit, Schwalbe’s neither
I don’t get it, I’ve fitted and refitted a Schwalbe Hans Dampf, Rocket Ron, Racing Ralph, Sammy Slick as well as Conti mountain king 2 (Flow Ex rims) no bother and without needing tyre levers.Posted 4 years agob rMember
one cold rainy winter night ride in the middle of nowhere a big slit inside wall and a long walk home.
Tubeless or tubed, you’d still had had a split tyre. You need to carry a couple thick tie-wraps so after you’ve put a tube in (you did carry a spare tube?) you can just support the tyre on the rim by wrapping them around.Posted 4 years agobartimaeusMember
The last Nic I put on went on by hand with no levers… so I am hopeful that I will not struggle too badly if I ever have to do a trailside fix.
Well the day for a trailside fix was today… a rear puncture that would not seal (no liquid sealant left in the tyre… oops). Nic popped off with a tyre lever, tube in, reseated by hand – sorted. Big sigh of relief.Posted 4 years agoPimpmaster JazzMember

I don’t get it either. I’ve been running tubeless for about six years using UST rims, and having recently got some, I find Stan’s far more difficult.Posted 4 years ago
