Tubeless tyre ?

Postby xbakerbob » Thu May 31, 2018 9:57 pm

Made a boo boo and bought a tubeless rear tyre.
I've always fitted my own but they've all been tubed tyres.
This one is especially ridged and i reckon could be a bit of a bugger to get on.
Anyone with any experience of fitting tubeless tyres on a Dr ?

Cheers Bob.

I fit all my own tyres to all my Bigs and don`t have any problems.
My favourite combination is Bridgestone TW41 on the front and Bridgestone TW152 radial on the rear.
The TW152 is tubeless as well as a radial and is no problem to fit or have any running issues with.
I`ve also used other tubeless tyres with no issues.
Just treat it like a woman and make sure it`s well lubed ;)

Best place to get tyres is Oponeo.

I leave the new tire out in the sun for a bit before fitting, the heat softens them a bit, together with a bit of soapy water they pop on no bother

The only thing that lets most trail bikes down is the shitty tubed wheels

Good in theory but I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a inner safety bead like on the KTM rim shown. If you need to tighten a spoke, you could break the seal.

Hello there. Once fitted do you balance them yourselves and if yes how?
