- Tubeless woes
I have a set of 5.1s and find that they are really hard to fit any tyre to.
Mine have tubeless rims strips in but I don’t use them tubeless. I don’t know if its a shallower well or a rim that is slightly large in diameter but for sure they are the hardest rims to fit tyres to I have uses.
Mavics and ryno lytes on other bikes I have are much easierPosted 9 years ago
Hi TJ how you doing?
Got the Nobby Nics off the bear and he says he can get them on and off Mavic UST rims easy.
I can get ordinary Nics mounted easily but these UST’s wont go.
By the way, me Debs and the kids are coming up last 2 weeks in August, staying at Laggan so will have to meet up again.
No mad chinese women, though.Posted 9 years ago
Mate gave me some UST Nobby Nics so, having DT5.1 rims, I stumped up the cash and bought DT tubeless kits to convert.
Spent the better part of yesterday trying to get the Nobby Nics on and they just wont go.
Doing the usual bead in the middle, stretching tyre round towards the valve.
Managed to get one side over with this method but could not get the other side on.
Unfortunately couldn’t get the installed side off to abort the mission and ended up having to cut it off (glad it was a freebie)
Googling indicates that DT5.1 and some UST tyres (Nics are named) wont go.
So can anyone recommend UST tyres which do fit on coverted 5.1’s.
Thanks in advance.Posted 9 years ago
