  • Recommend me a 29er 'loose' tyre
  • After two hours trying to wrestle some Geax TNT tyres onto a mavic crossride rime i’ve given up.
    I’m used to fitting tight tyres but this is ridiculous – granted they’re tubeless tyres and i’m fitting with a tube…even so.
    So need to try something else – cheap and suitable for the chilterns and preferable large.
    Anyone any experience with cross-ride rims know of something an easy fit?

    Plastic-coated steel tyre levers?

    Yep, got those already…bead in wheel, fairy liquid, toe straps etc etc..all usual tricks tried.
    Even I could get them on, its not something I’d want to repeat out on a ride so looser tyre best bet!


    You think Geax TNT tyres are a tight fit…?

    You’ll have fun with one of the new crop of WTB “TCS Light” tyres then! 😆


    conti trail king 2.2 cheap tough big.

    Never had any trouble getting Specialized Purgatory’s on my Mavic tubeless rims. Bargain at £30 too.


    You are not putting the 26″ tyres on 27.5 wheels, are you? 😉


    Anything by Schwalbe is pretty loose fitting for tubeless tyres.

    Specialised have gone onto all my rims pretty well.

    I’ve never seen anything as tight as the geax TNT bead.

    thanks all – few to take a look at. Glad to hear it’s not just me finding those tnt’s tight.
