    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...

    Old Tyres

    Don't know if this has been covered, apologies if so and bin this. Was reading somewhere the other day that bike tyres and tubes are to be disposed of like you currently do car tyres, i.e. that they will have to be taken to a recycling place. I realise though that it is a lot easier to get an...

    Any success glue-repairing tyres?

    I tried superglue/gorilla glue and thought it was working but just inspected and it has now come out of all the nicks I thought I had filled with it! Is there a more flexible glue that works better, or even some fine filler material that can be glued in the gaps? Edit - or will I have more...

    Slick tyres for Hybrid bike recommendations?

    Thought I'd do a bit of a pimp my ride for my long suffering Carrera Subway. The rims are stock and a bit wonky, the tyres are okay but something with really low rolling resistance would be much more fun. Any thoughts on upgrades for both? The current tyres are 26 - 1.6. Would I be able to get...

    Upgrading to slicker tyres

    Rather than go all out and purchase a second bike, I would like to invest in some proper thinner road tyres for my Tricross Sport. How do you decipher which tyres to buy? Sizes and inner tunes etc..? Can you put them on the existing wheels? Any recommendations on brand ? Cheers P_C

    Wiggle tyres supply issues?

    On a lovely little ride and my tyre gave up the ghost. Thankfully I wasn't going fast etc... But what did shock me today was when looking at tyres on Wiggle there isn't much stock... even less choice when you look at tubes. Are they all made in China or something and there is supply problems?

    Recommendations for 700x38c ish touring / gravel tyres please..

    Having now covered about 200 miles on my new CdF I'm thinking maybe I was a little too generous to the WTB Riddlers it came with. Perhaps unsurprisingly since they've been used a lot on the road, I've found noticeable wear to the tread already (again, unsurprisingly especially on the rear)...
