- "Tubeless ready" tyres – are they cr*p?
My On One Dirty Dans are pukka Pacestar TLR ones. I’m not even sure the DD came in a 2.0″ previously.
Older tyres had a grey bead, these are black, and noticeably stiffer than non-TLR Schwalbes. Whilst I agree much of their cheap tyre stock is a little suspect these really do appear to be the real McCoy.Posted 6 years agoJohnny PanicSubscriber
Spesh Storm Control 2Bliss are great, even with track pump.
My experience too.Posted 6 years ago
Spesh Storm & Purgatory 2Bliss on DT5.1 with the rimstrip fitted. Started with the tyre beads in the middle of the rimstrip, pumped up slowly with a track pump and they both just went up & sealed.mtbmattMember
Only times I’ve ever had a problem with TR or UST tyres is when there is a dent or gunk in the rim stopping from sealing properly.
Recently had this problem on a Stans 355 with a Dirty Dan tyre. Checked the rim and there was a small dent. Pulled that out and they went up and stayed up fine.
Dirty Dan is a great tyre too, really surprised by how grippy it is (being “only” 2.0″) and manages to not be really slow.Posted 6 years ago
