No tubes stuff
The rim strip and sealants you liink t,o are fine. You don’t need Ust tyres though, tubeless ready are cheaper, lighter and work just fine. I got a pair of. 2.4 snakeskin nobby nics for £57 from bike-discount.de so try there for you Ralphs?Posted 5 years ago
With that kit you don’t need a valve tool. The bottles look like measured doses and squirty nozzles.coolhandlukeSubscriber
Try ghetto tubeless first.
It’s cheaper, more satisfying (assuming you get it to work) and cheaper.
I’ve done numerous tyre / rim combinations.
Old tyres work best, new ones are a pig. New tyres should be run with a tube for a bi to get them in shape.
I bought some Stans years ago, still got about 1/3 of it left, cost £20. One BMX inner tube per wheel, cost £3.Posted 5 years ago
JRA – tape = £13.50
JRA – valves = £12.60
JRA – Stans gunk = £6.30
not even close al 😉
the tyre thing is interesting though. I fancy building some superlight summer wheels. Using a 500g tyre instead of my normal 650-700g ones. I like RR and WTBs so assuming they’re not reknowned for being shit with tubeless I might go that way and find some discount sellers.Posted 5 years ago
above all watch the stans fitting videos.
will do, ta.

So now we’re far enough into the 21st century to be sure that it isnt a hoax…..
…. Im considering having a go at tubeless.
Some Crests on at a bargin £36 an end at Wiggle for a day have arrived. What do I need to get them running tubeless without spending a fortune?
I was thinking, this rim strip stuff, gunk and removable core valves for £19:
and some summer-weight UST tyres like WTB nano 50gg UST for £47 and end or:
or some 2.25″ RR 585g for £37 an end:
Do I need any special tools like a valve core key or a sealant injector or can I bodge it with a pair of pliers and a small funnel?Posted 5 years agoslinkybikeMember
I found the cheaper performance range of Racing Ralph’s excellent to run tubeless with Stan’s crest rims yellow tape and some local australian made sealant I have not burped one yet and they were doddle to seat. I am waiting for summer to buy some lighter tubeless ready ones although from fitting them to other bikes I have found there side walls a little more porous so they take a little longer to really bed in.Posted 5 years ago
