- Tubeless with chunky monkey and flow rims 26"
Yup, been running a CM on Flow ex for just over 12 months. Used SS rim tape and valve, proper Stans sealant and went up just fine using a track pump (I did used the inner tube in first for a bit to seat the tape and bead trick).
Works really well for me, I ride a lot in the Peak and also go to Rivvington, Cannock, Gisburn, Wales.
I got the Trail Extreme version (dual compound) and it’s wearing well, good grip in pretty much all conditions except snow, ice and thick gloopy boggy shite. Been running it at around 28psi.Posted 4 years agoEcky-ThumpMember
Same combo on the front of my hardtail.
Stans yellow tape/valve/fluid.
Went up fine with a garden sprayer as compressor and a good rub with fairy liquid.
Did have a few problems burping when trying to run at low pressure for grip on Calder-tech stuff (guesstimated 15 – 20 psi)
Upped the pressure to about 25 psi and it’s been faultless at that.
6’3″, 13 st, not delicate!
Profile wise, they are massive. Almost fills the fork bridge on my ‘zochi 44 and I can only just fit a muckynutz in there.Posted 4 years agob rMember
Cheers guys I had a shop try to set it up but had it blow off at 30 psi and said the tyre wasn’t up to it !!.
1 You often don’t need that much to seat a tyrePosted 4 years ago
2 That presumably was 30psi on THEIR gauge
3 If you are paying someone to setup your tubeless tyre, how are you going to know how to fix it when you’ve a problem?
I had a look at the tyre and the shop had fitted cut down gaffer tape but 4mmtoo wide. After fitting 25mm gorilla tape and an old valve it went up to 40 psi with no dramas, just waiting for the arrival of a bolt on Schrader valve from eBay and job done
Cheers for the info guysPosted 4 years ago
