    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...

    Tubeless rims.

    I've been tidying up my bike store and have found some things I didn't know I had. One of these is a good quality rear hub which I'd like to build up into a wheel. Any recommendations for a 36 hole rim, rim brakes, 700c, 25-28mm tyre? If you don't like tubeless please don't contribute, I'm...

    Tubeless standard(s)

    Are all tubeless tyres suitable for all "tubeless ready" rims these days? Or are there competing standards? I ask this because I was reading around and found various articles of various ages that mentioned Mavic's UST standard and a "forthcoming" ISO 5775 standard (I don't know if it's come...

    Tubeless tyre first assembly

    Schwalbe pro ones first assembly says the tyre must be run for 25 km after first assembly or sealing cannot be guaranteed. With Xmas not been out on new bike and the ice & snow have curtailed that for this week too. I’m itching to get out on it before returning to site next week but chances look...

    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

    I was pondering this so thought I would ask. Not asking which is best as it’s been asked a thousand times but do you use them or see a benefit to them on Audax or long distance rides ?

    Tubeless tyre plug

    Apologies if this has been done before, I'm getting differing opinions when searching so thought Id just ask. I got a puncture yesterday that didn't seal, Luckily I was about 1km away from nearest bike shop who kindly stuck a plug into it and it was fine. The cut was about 4/5mm and the plug...

    Conti GP5000 tubeless and DT Swiss Rims?

    Anybody else tried this combination? Like an idiot I forgot what a pain it was to fit tubeless tyres, my last attempt was schwalve tubeless easy on some Hunt wheels, went on eventually but painful and very difficult to seat. They just weren't successful. Anyhow I thought I'd give them another...

    Tubeless compatability and other Qs about Maddux RD2.0 wheels as fitted to the Cannondale Caad13..

    I'm looking for a second wheelset for my CdF so I can swap between slicks and knobblies. I'm tight and happy with the OEM wheels (Jalco 240D, 19c, 32h, TLR) but can't find any of these. I have found a pair of Maddux RD2.0s (which I believe come from the same company and are fitted as standard...

    Is Innertube Sealant different to Tubeless Sealant?

    Out on Saturday as as I was coming back home I could feel the back of the bike wasn't right it was moving around too much. About 1/2 mile from home I stopped & found a couple of large thorns in the tyre, so pulled them out, checked & could see anymore obvious ones, gave it a quick CO2 & made it...

    Tubeless Seating

    First time with tubeless (self-setting-up rather than already done). Got the tyres on. Got inflated and added sealant. Held pressure overnight. Only thing is, there wasn't a lot of the "popping" and cracking you hear on the old YouTube videos. What do I need to do to check all okay before...

    Mixing tubeless sealant

    Quick question on sealants. My Mavic wheels came with Mavic own brand sealant so I used this up when first installing the wheels. I also brought a big bottle of stans sealant for top ups but now im wondering if I need to remove the tyres, clean out all the old mavic sealant before topping up...

    Advice on Tubeless Tyres, please

    I've just purchased a pair of wheels as an upgrade. They've arrived this morning, with tubeless tyres attached. They weren't described on the website (Wiggle) as coming with tyres, but thank you anyway. The problem is I'm completely new to tubeless tyres and the tech. behind them. There's a...

    Pumping up tubeless tyres

    Hi, I am now running my first set of tubeless tyres but struggle with topping up the psi. I can top them up but it takes a massive effort most of my 90kg bodyweight on the pump and it’s slow going just had massive resistance at 60-70psi. I Just wondered if that is how they are or if I should be...

    I've just ordered the wife a set of tubeless compactable disc wheels for her Specialized Ruby Sport. I'm wondering whether or not to set them up as tubeless but having NEVER ventured into a tubeless setup before, i'm a bit unsure. My reasons for going tubeless are only really for one reason...

    Specialized Air Tool Blast Tubeless tyre setter

    Only used a handful of times, Works well. You attach a track pump and fill the air reservior, then turn the valve, and it dumps all that air out in one go. If you've got tubeless tyres you'll know how hard they can be with just a pump - you really need to get the air into them quicker than a...

    EasyRide "tubeless" Tyres.

    In late 2019, I purchased a Giant Escape 0, with EasyRide "tubeless" tyres, fitted as standard. Since then, I have been happily riding around with a tubeless puncture repair kit, and, just in case, a spare inner tube, plus pump of course. Today, disaster struck, a puncture. which was too large...

    Mavic yksion tubeless tyres

    I've got these tyres, came with my Mavic kysrium wheels and I've run them as tubeless since I got them. No issues - until today. On a fast descent I must have hit a grid or pothole I didn't see and had almost instant deflation. Thankfully stayed upright. Tried pumping up, but the hole seemed...
