    QR Gravel wheels - tubeless.

    I’m finding myself starting to venture more off the beaten track on my old(ish) Fuji bike. It was originally tagged as an adventure bike at the time on purchase and has plenty of space for tyres up to 45 mm. It’s currently on a Kinesis wheelset that are ideal to set up tubeless as the well is...

    Should I patch a tubeless tyre while it’s off

    I’m new to using tubeless so I hope this isn’t a stupid question. I have a tyre off which previously had a puncture and has sealed. I’ve found the sealant plug. Can I use a regular innertube patch on the inside of the tyre as a permanent fix instead of just relying on the sealant?

    Guys... I'm shortly going tubeless on my Trek MTB... I've got everything to do this, but one question... Should I, or do I need to also buy a tubeless tyre repair kit? Cheers, G.

    Tubeless Tyre Damage

    Evening all, I have a very slow deflating rear tyre, upon close inspection, I have found a slight incision (can feel the air whistling out when my hand is near). The question is, how exactly do you repair such a small cut in the tyre?

    Tubeless tyre practicalities

    I’m looking for some advice from those of you who run tubeless tyres. I’ve started to use one of my road bikes as a gravel bike. The wheels (Fulcrum Racing 6) and tyres Vittoria Terreno Dry) are tubeless ready, but I’ve been running them with an inner tube. I’ve been reluctant to go tubeless...

    Right tubeless pressure

    Hi, my new bike is set up tubeless. First time I've tried tubeless. It comes with 25mm tyres, and on the side the suggested range is 85-125 psi. Given I'm 98kg and I ride on an ok surfaced tarmac, what tyre pressure would you recommend for front and rear?

    Tube vs tubeless

    Watch till the end. View: Post note edit: As correctly pointed out by @Milkfloat, the syringe valve injection is not recommended by Stan's No tube "race sealant version". The bigger crystals in the liquid that acts to seal cannot pass thru.

    Campagnolo Zonda's and going tubeless.

    Been running them with tubes but looking at going tubeless, got tubeless on other wheels so have a little bit of experience with them. Question is do I need rim tape with this sort of wheels? The spokes are ' hidden ' for want of another word so can't see the need for tape. The bumph that...

    tubeless ready tyres

    I am due to change tyres on my road bike. My wheels are tubeless ready and the tyres I use are Hutchinson tubeless ready. I am thinking of setting up as tubeless with sealant. I know you need to have different valves but do you need to change the rim tape. My tape is in good condition but there...

    Tubeless Valves

    Anyone running tubeless valves cut out of old inner tubes ? Talking about fully threaded ones with removable cores. My current valves are not long enough I could buy them however when inner tubes are somewhat cheaper, just wonder if its viable ?

    Tubeless Tyre Deflated today mid-ride

    Hi folks, was out this morning and my co-rider noticed my rear tyre had gone down - I checked and couldn't really see any damage. Had another issue trying to pump it back up as the mini pump I have is supposed to screw into the valve in order for it to be pumped, after pumping back up, I...

    Tubeless tyre advice

    Hi All, I have recently invested in a new bike which will be fitted with tubeless tyres. 2 questions really, are they really as difficult to fit onto the rims as they look (youtube) and what would you recommend for me to carry in my saddle bag? I currently carry 2 tubes, CO2, levers and repair...

    Fitting new tubeless tyres to new tubeless rims

    First time fitting tubeless, trying to get my continental gp5000 TLR tyres (25mm) onto my new hunt superdura wheels. I can't get the tyre over the rim fully at all. It's already shaving plastic off my Xtools tyre levers and I'm worried I'll break something if I force it any harder. I'm using...

    Schwalbe pro ones first assembly says the tyre must be run for 25 km after first assembly or sealing cannot be guaranteed.

    Tubeless pumps and sealant injectors

    I'm awaiting delivery of my first tubeless rims, I have the tyres and sealant here already. The questions I have are 1. Should I invest in a tubeless pump that charges up to release air in one hit, and 2. Do I need a sealant injector, and if so are they all the same size in terms of valve...

    Tubeless Wheelset for the Mammoths amongst us, me included

    I'm after a tubeless wheelset for a rider of my heft :blush: (125kg last measured, heaviest bike is a 15kg ebike (measured)). I'm on a budget so will have to rule out some of the exotica out there (🤤:sad::cry:). I've found quite a few out there with a 130kg+ limit (that piece of info is not that...

    Tubeless tyre sizing vs clincher and tubes?

    I'm about to click 'order' on a new pair of tubeless rims and tyres. The bit I can't be sure about is that my current clincher and tube set up has a 25mm Continental GP on them and there's a bit of space around the wheels in all dimensions so could possibly go up to 28mm. I'm wondering if the...

    Do Audax riders use tubeless
