- Time to go tubeless*
I’ve run the following rims “Ghetto” Tubeless:
-Mavic EX729 (x3)
-Sun Rhyno Lite (Pinned!)
-24″ Tioga DH
-24″ DMR DV
And I bought a used Mavic crossland which it turned out the previous used had butchered by drilling out the valve hole and bolloxing the rim strip, so I now run that ghetto style too
All of the above with no issues…
Gaffa tape, 20″ BMX tube, some liquid latex and a compressor (Or a track pump and some manly pumping) and your well away…Posted 6 years agoMarkyG82Member
Running ghetto on a f519 and d521. As Jameso, If the bed is built up enough any tyre should work. I run some leccy tape round the rim. Then put the old rim strip back on (ir removeable). That way the bed is nice and high and the tyre goes really tight. Also a general poke through the tape for the valve makes it a stiff fit so it dont pop out when hooking the pump on.Posted 6 years agobikewhispererMember
I found some very cheap Eclipe/DT rim strips which are doing the job on mine. Spent ages trying to find some good double sided tape to stick them down. They’re not happy with Mud-x’s but seem fine with any Maxxis tyres. I’ve tried packing the rimstrips out underneath to get a better seal on the Bontragers, but then they’re an epic struggle to get on.Posted 6 years ago
I reckon you could go at it with some maxxis tyres, some chopped out presta valves and 4+ layers of gaffer tape. Would go for at least 6 layers for Bontrager ones, but have a play as they’re all different!
