Tubes or Tubeless Poll!
#11
Tubed. Havent had a flat for ages. One since March I think. No doubt I will now have lots tonight!  Big Grin
I will go tubeless though as I quite like running low pressures and tubes dont like that.

tubeless for downhill riding. For long rides tubes.

Stans rims & no UST Spesh Captains.  Bought the wheels & Tyres; got a free Stumpy! Big Grin
When I finally finish the HT that'll be tubeless too with non UST Tyres.

Had loads of punctures in tubes.
Been tubeless for a few weeks & had blurping & puncture (sidewall slice), but, as BMJBOY said, they just feel better & provide more feedback.

all tubes for me, fat ones on the mtb, skinny ones on the roadie... and somewhere in the middle on the old ht which goes all over oxfordshire/warwickshire during the wek seeking interesting roads and byways... recent bridleway excursions have caused a number of issues.

Just had my first tubeless gunk spray experience! I've noticed the odd little thorn in my tyres since I went tubeless but never really noticed anything more than the occasional drop in a few psi during a ride until today. Before heading out I noticed a fairly chunky looking bit of twig stuck in the tread of my rear tyre so obviously went to pull it out while having a closer look for any damage, cue face full of latex  Big Grin

But it sealed a hole about 2mm across fairly sharpish and after topping the sealant up I didn't lose any pressure whatsoever during the ride

Just about to switch over to Tubless. Got my Stans fluid and Tubless ready High roller up front with a mud x rear. Went to do the converstion and the rim tape on my DT swiis wheels  are knackered.

Has anyone used the Joe rim strips. There about £18 a pair versus £40 for Stanns?

Just get some Gorilla tape, £5 from Skrewfix. Never had a leak when I used it on my Singletracks.

Dont yet trust my mech skills enough to go tubless without serious latex wearing possibilities  ??)  :B

Been running self sealing tubes for a year now though, apart from a pinch flat on the BBH steps, not had any punctures.

Changed over to my winter Mud X's this morning, took the Fire XC pros off had a check around the inside of them and amazingly found seven thorns in the front and another four in the rear  :o
So they really work. They are a few grams heavier but a good compromise between std tubes and tubeless
