    Ive repaired sidewalls with no problems tubeless. Stitch with dental floss and put a large patch on the inside to seal and outside to protect stitching. May be a bit tricky to do on the tread though?…


    Stuck a half cm gash is my reasonably new racing ralph tyre the other day. Was running tubeless and wouldn’t seal up.

    Put in a tube and it runs fine, however am I able to repair the tyre to run tubeless in future? Gash is on top of tyre rather than sidewall if that makes any difference.

    Half cm gash doesn’t sound too bad. I found this article on pinkbike useful…

    Might get away with the plug method on half a cm.

    Just repaired a 1.5cm+ gash in the sidewall of a Minion with just patches and that’s back up and running tubeless


    5mm? Stick a sticky worm in there
