- Tubeless tyre rotating round rim
Nope, New one on me. I use a tub of tyre fitting soap and never had that problem. If you’re just using some bubbles/road from wul, there really shouldn’t be enough to do this.
I’ve seen it happen on tubed set ups . That normally means the bead has stretched and its time for a new tyre.
How old is the tyre?Posted 2 years ago
As above really, fitted a 2.35 EXO Maxxis Ikon on an alexrims supra 35 rim, loads of tape and sealant, went up first time with a bit of soap.Posted 2 years ago
Been on two 20 mile rides and have noticed that the tyre has rotated round the rim about 90 degrees. No air or sealant appears to have escaped, so I can only assume there is a bit of soap on the bead making the tyre rotate under braking. Anyone else experienced this?
Cynic-al, that’s pretty much all there is to a stretched bead. Used to ride with a chap, huge chap and strong with it. He never wore a tyre out in the conventional way and when they started going, he’d regularly rip valves out of tubes.
I’ve also heard of people having issues refitting old tyres tubeless because the bead is fractionally slacker than last time, not suffered it myself though.Posted 2 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I’ve had it happen when riding on a soft tyre (just getting to the end of a stage) but if it’s all working right and the pressure’s up then the amount of friction between the tyre and rim should be huge. I’d be pretty wary of it personally, I’m too tight to just immediately declare it a no go but it doesn’t inspire confidence eitherPosted 2 years ago
Until some comedy braking attempt where the wheels stop and the tyres don’t. That would be awesome.
I have seem someone that was running a Mouse tube* in the rear without a security bolt(see my pic above) and the Mouse started breaking up. Que the rider sitting there on a climb with the rear wheel spinning and the tyre stationary.
