Nobby nic non tubeless anyone setup tubeless ok?
My non TLR Nics, Non TLR Ralphs and TLR are fine thanks 🙂
TBH, the non TLR’s took some fitting the first time around – leaking from the bead like yours. You need to slosh the Stans around whilst rotating the tire, flip it over an repeat. Theres a video of this technique on the NoTubes website.
Mine took 48hrs to seal. Now they have residue on the bit they pump up straight away. The TLR ready tires were fit, add lube and pump, 1 round of shaking and done – 10 minutes.Posted 5 years agoJolly Green GiantMember
I have non tlr Nobby Nic front and racing Ralph rear Evos on roval control wheels and they hold air fine. Don’t skimp on latex, loads of fairy liquid and then laying the wheel on its side worked for me. And make sure the valves are seated. I put extra tape round mine.Posted 5 years agomintimperialSubscriber
It can be done, put some extra sealant in there, pump it up to 40psi and go for a ride. Keep topping the tyre up with air and after a couple of weeks it’ll settle down properly. I ran a non-TLR NN tubeless like this for maybe 9 months before it died in an argument with a big pointy rock.Posted 5 years ago
1 hour of repeated pumping like a crazyman, cursing aplenty and loads of stans wasted, eventually got it to seat and inflate. But still sidewalls and bead have micro leaks. Am sure by morn it’ll be flat. Am I wasting my time?
Folding NN double defence on a Shimano tubeless rim. Seated ok think it’s the carcas is porous main issue.Posted 5 years agoalthepalSubscriber
Aye, have the evo NNs. Took a while to set up and a day or two to properly seal. Also using Roval Controls (ELs) and was helluva fiddly to get them on but apart from a leaky valve at the back (sorted by using a cut out tube valve and another bit of tube to trim) they’ve been great..Posted 5 years agoHazeSubscriber
Only tried the tubeless ready, front flew up with no problems at all.
The rear needed a blast of CO2 (not ideal I know) to get seated and probably loses air a tad quicker than the front, lasts over a few rides though so no biggie.
Both stayed up overnight without sealant on XC717’s.Posted 5 years ago
