Stans rim, continental and bonty TR tyre question.
They'll be far easier to inflate with a rim strip, but you won't need them. Conti tyres can be a bit baggy on the rim, they're very inconsistent, so you may need a few turns of rim tape to get it to stay up. Bonty tyres are usually really tight, so that shouldn't be an issue.
The rim strips weigh about 15g, not exactly the difference between a UST version! If you plan on changing tyres, I'd strongly recommend using them.Posted 8 years ago
it seems the rimstrips (not yellow tape) weigh 56g not 15g? which isn't much, i thought they were heavier than that.
i don't intend to change tyres as the jones acx are meant to be good all rounders and seemed o.k in the mud when i borrowed a pair or wheels with them on.Posted 8 years ago
if the bontis are easier to inflate i'll go with them over the conti's, just need to know if they are difficult to seal with yellow tape and a track pump? i don't have a compressor.
I have done a fair bit of googling but haven't come up with an definitive answer so i guess one of you lot will know.
If i use bonty jones acx tubeless ready tyres on a stans flow rim is the yellow tape and valve with a bit of jizz o.k or should i use a rimstrip?
also has anyone used a conti tyre (not a UST type) and would i need a rimstrip for these?
if i don't get the bontys then thinking of possibly using a 2.2 rubber queen. if the weight of a tyre and rimstrip is greater than the ust version (or close to it) then i'll use the ust version.
anyone using the above tyre/rim/rimstrip combo's your info is appreciated.Posted 8 years agoOnzadogSubscriber
The advice from Just Riding Along on such things, that I decided to ignore and then found out was actaully correct was this: –
Flow rims and non UST tyres, use a rim strip
Flow rims with UST tyres, just yellow tape.
Of course, there are people who have got other setups to work but I had some burping issues with normal tyres and tape, and a couple of roll offs!Posted 8 years ago
