- “Tubeless ready” tyres who apart from bontranger ??
I know how you all love a tyre thread so I thought I would try and help to keep you all happy.
As title is there any others doing these tyres,
I have tried other tubed type but they are just so much hassel to get them to sealed as they seem so loose on my 717 rims. I like the low weight of the Bontys and being tubeless, and its easy.
Just fancy a change.
Feel free to slag off this thread.Posted 9 years agoaracerSubscriber
Supposedly tubeless ready = UST bead without UST sidewalls, so you get all the advantages of better sealing of UST without the weight and RR penalty (you simply use sealant as with any other non-UST tubeless). Would be nice if there were a lot more available, as at least in theory it’s the best of both worlds.
I thought you needed specific rims for them to help though, hence they wouldn’t be that beneficial on 717s.Posted 9 years ago
I’m a big fan of bonty tubeless ready, they arnt the best tyres for rocky situations but apart from that, great.
the lust high roller is good too, i ran it without sealant for a while on mav 819, was fine, i wouldnt say they are especially light though.
i’m really interested in trying some geax tyres, but need to wear out some rubber first :0
non ust schwalbe tyres also work really well tubeless (on tubeless rims), and in some varieties the ust versions are light!Posted 9 years agoblastitSubscriber
Thanks for all the suggestions Geax sound good, I will have a search.Posted 9 years ago
Looked at the maxxis lust but looked here http://www.justridingalong.com/news/2007/12/06/maxxis-tyres-under-1-kg/
and the high roller lust 2.35 is almost 300g heavier than the normal kevlar one of the same size. While I love the tubeless concept thats quite a lot of extra weight to spin.
Found the schwalbe a bit loose on the rim.
they are crossmax Sl’s so full UST and using two scoops per wheel .
didn’t have any issues seating them or inflating but they just wouldn’t stay up.
however, this was over xmas when it was hovering around 0c -3c, would this cause any difficulty sealing ?!??!?

on and on, two scoops of stans or JRA wheel milk? i’ve not used stans but wheel milk should work about 80ml does the job, dont over inflate to start, try 20-25psi then give them a good shake and spin, i usally leave them over night, top up in the morning with maybe another 20ml reinflate and thats it, out and ride, they stay up fine.Posted 9 years ago
Been out on some real cold rides with them no problem, the stw swinley ride was below 0, had one on then, for months infact.
I guess the initial sealing process may be effected by the cold but if i recall i topped them up before the SPAM event (enough to hear it sloshing around inside)too which was below 0 aswell, no problems then either (but allready sealed i guess)
thats whats going on with mine,every now and again a hole would appear and the be sealed along the cord in the side wall.
usual procedure of fitting and filled then, fit ,fill ,shake ,lay on side overnight , flip and lay on other side . fit to bike ,ride ,pump , ride ,pump .put bike away find flat tyres a few hour later .
the tyres weigh 420grams each with is a little under what a 2.1 should weigh.
i have considered the tubeless ready tyres but decided this would be the better option if it worked 🙂 LOLPosted 9 years ago
