    Tubeless question

    hi, I am buying a new bike and have a choice of 3 on my shortlist, all come with tubeless tyres.I have seen videos on them and they seem pretty much puncture proof due to the self sealant supplied.Now I know nothing is certain and they are not 100% as you see the pros getting punctures. My...

    Tubeless tyre upgrade options

    Hi, I had a crash at the weekend when I skidded on a wet road. I was rolling on Giant SLR wheels with 25mm Giant Gavia AC 1 tyres. Naturally, I am looking to replace the tyres with ones that grip better in the wet, because coming off the bike at 30mph hurts. I would like to stay tubeless and...

    Road Tubeless Tips **update re leak**

    Hello all. I'm fairly mechanically minded (build up my own bikes and wheels) but I've never fitted or used a tubeless tyre. I have read and watched plenty and generally know what to do. More out of interest I've ordered some Hutchinson Fusion 5 11storm tyres due to what seems to be universally...

    UST/Tubeless Tires for touring?

    Pretty much as the title suggests, I'm looking to get some wider, knobblier tyres for my steel adventure/light touring bike and have been debating going tubeless. I've got 'UST-ready' rims (mavic XM419) and like the idea of low-pressure tyres for light off-roading, but there doesn't seem to be...

    Tubeless road plus setups

    I was thinking of getting a 650b road wheelset for a new Surly Troll. 'Road plus' or whatever it's called this week. Something along these lines. I notice however, even on 'skinny' tyres the max pressures aren't particularly high: "Maximum tyre pressures for other tyre sizes 30mm do not...

    Tubeless - what tools/spares do you take on rides?

    Hi all, With the new bike only days away I'm starting to think about putting together a kit of tools and spares. On my Roubaix and commuter I've got saddle bags so can carry plenty of kit. I want to keep the lines of the Bianchi clean so don't want to fit a saddle bag if I can help it. What do...

    New to tubeless

    I am new to tubeless tyres and had a puncture this week. For about 5 secondsthe tyre hissed and the sealant came out of the hole and then stopped. I pumped a bit more air in the tyre and carried on. Is it a good idea to add a bit more sealant to the tyre?

    Tubeless - it's the way forward

    After a series of punctures the cause of which was hard to pin down I've decided to go tubeless. The rims on the bike are tubeless ready and while there was plenty of life left in the tyres, I'd lost confidence in the front so decided to buy a new pair of Schwalbe Moto Xs. The job was done by...

    Tubeless or tubed ??

    After getting a puncture yesterday and having to walk 6 miles home (yes, schoolboy error not having a spare tube with me), I have been thinking................. Is it worth sticking with tubed tyres and carrying tubes, pump, repair kit, levers etc or is it worth going tubeless (the wheels and...

    Tubeless worth it for a road bike?

    After a 3rd puncture (2 on back tyre, one on front) in a week, I've reached the point where my tyres are pretty much too cut up and need replacing (to be expected I guess, they are "racier" tyres, so longevity not the key). I now have a dilemma. I've been looking at tubeless for a while, and...

    When I have to replace the tyres on my Trice QNT I'm thinking of upgrading to Schwalbe Big Apples for a little extra comfort and I am also considering going tubeless. However has anyone attempted this and how successful/difficult was it?

    Tubeless tyres

    Is anyone here running tubeless tyres on their daily ride? I am seriously considering putting them on my hybrid as they seem like a great idea but they are still a pretty new deal and quite expensive hence any genuine experiences would be good to hear about.

    Tubeless ready rims and punctures

    Does anyone have experience of fixing punctures on tubeless ready rims? One of my bikes has tubeless ready rims with inner tubes. Fixing today's puncture wasn't quite straightforward. First problem was unseating the bead from the rim. Hand pressure wasn't enough, although I did manage it...

    Anybody seen "sweating" on tubeless tyres?

    There's an interesting discussion going on on Singletrack about this, they are mostly mountain bikers so I thought I'd nip over here and ask if anybody with road tyres filled with latex has noticed sweating on the tyres. Opinion is divided between water from the latex solution and oil used as...

    Is tubeless really worth the hassle and exspence , my mate had a flat at the weekend , we could not sort it out so a tube was fitted . What's the point.

    Going Tubeless

    I'm out for 4-5 rides a week usually. The last few weeks I have had at least one puncture a week and am getting fed up with standing beside the road fixing the puncture, usually in the wet, so after a lifetime of tubes I've taken the plunge. Just ordered a pair of 28mm Hutchinson road...

    Tubeless tyre pressures for a beginner

    Mounting a tubeless tyres on a road bike

    One of my tyres now resists my efforts and those of a professional, experienced MTB mechanic to mount. Two shops, Evans and Giant, have quoted £40 to mount a tyre. Given that I successfullly mounted tyres (including the current miscreant) in less than 10 minutes I do not find the shop charge...

What are people's thoughts on the pros and cons of a tubeless set-up for audaxing? If anybody has any insight I would be...

    Tubeless tyres are awesome!

    I think this would have even defeated Marathon Plus tyres: it was 35mm long! With tubeless, I only noticed it due to the noise on the road every wheel revolution.
