Has anyone tried a tubeless conversion on a Superstar AM490?

    Yes but ghetto tubeless for me - 20" BMX tube split down the middle, works a dream.

    I use Schwalbe tubes as they've got removable cores which helps to pop the tyres onto the rim when using a ghetto compressor (2 litre Coke bottle).

    I've got 2 sets, one with summer tyres (waste of bloody time they were this year) and one with winters on. No issues what-so-ever and I bash around in The Peak District rocks all of the time.
