- Stans Flow 29" UST rims and TR tyres
I’m looking to change my tyres on the tallboy to something a bit more robust for our dower months ahead. I’m thinking I might ditch UST (ardent F/Crossmark R) and just go with a 200g lighter TR tyre as (like we all do) I use sealant anyway.
My concerns are the obvious… Loosing a tyre at speed and or excessive burping. Stan’s actually advise against certain brands ie WTB so I’m wondering what other people are running on a Flow rim? Or is it worth the cost and weight penalty for 100% design comparability?Posted 4 years agoratherbeintobagoSubscriber
They’r enot UST in that they have spoke holes, so need tape. They grip the bead better than UST, in my experience.
They’re not UST because they’ve got a different internal rim profile and aren’t certified by the UST group.
Mavic have just launched 29er 819/821/823 rims if it has to be true UST, but they’re apparently heavy.Posted 4 years ago
