Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

Why didn't you stick a worm in? It's so simple and takes 10 seconds.

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

I ride in all weathers so don't want to be fixing a puncture in the freezing pissing rain if I can help it. These tyres seem to be the answer.

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

Quick update on the IRC Roadlites.

I've got 1500 miles on them now as I intend to run them right through the winter. Very pleased with them and hardly a mark on them. They seem much more durable than the Schwalbe pro ones which I have on the summer bike which seem to develop cuts wherever you go.

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

Hmmm, says Tubeless ready on the rims which is why I bought them. I've tried the schwalbe ones on these rims and they pop off the same when deflated. I feel deflated!

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

OK, here's a thing. I've been running road tubeless for well over a year. Started with Schwalbe pro1 and now run IRC Roadlites on my winter bike. These are on Prime wheels with Alexrims (tubeless ready) Not had any issues at all apart from when I periodically deflate them to add more sealant they un...

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

I’ve used the IRC roadlite tyre from the recommendation here for my winter bike. I have to say,they’ve been more durable than the schwalbe pro ones I have on the summer bike which seem very susceptible to glass cuts. The IRCs hardly have a mark in them and the tread depth is thicker.

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

Sounds like you just need another layer of tape to stop the tyre popping off. That's what I found with the pro ones on my Prime rims.

I think it does depend on the wheels as they are clearly not all the same.

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

I’ve now ridden about 400 miles on the IRC Roadlites. They still look like new. Not a mark on them, incredible!

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

Well, I've ordered some Roadlites to replace the Pro Ones on the training bike. Thanks for the advice Cycle Clinic and looking forward to trying them. I still rate the Pro Ones but need something more durable for general riding I think.

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

So I've just fitted my first set of tubeless Schwable Pro Ones to my Reynolds Strike wheels, one was all fitted and sealed in 20mins and the other took nearly 2 hours :? :D I'm running them at 85 psi front a 95 rear from 100 front and 110 rear (tubes), should I go lower pressure wise? They seem pre...

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

Would you recommend more tubeless tape layers if the tyre is fairly ‘loose’ on the rim?

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

It is a Schwalbe Pro One on an Alex rim. On reflection I think I had the pressure too low. But just unlucky I guess. Superglue seems to have fixed so I’ll see how it goes.

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

Big tubeless fail last night. Hit a muddy puddle in the pouring rain which actually turned out to be a big pothole. The front tyre went down straight away. I wasn't far away from the pub we going to so put a bit of air in via a co2, it seated back on the rim and continued. After I arrived a mile lat...

That's interesting. I may give the IRC tyre a go next.

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

Thanks for the tip on the glue. I’m 71 kg and I’m running the tyres about 75 psi.

For the winter bike I’ve got a set of Prime Pro wheels. The Schwalbes slip on easy peasy and stay up fine. They seem very light and good value.

Re: Road tubeless tyres, where and how much?

I've been running Schwalbe Pro 1s for nearly a year now and I'm a convert. First of all it was an experiment over summer but they've been really good so running them winter as well. I've had 2 punctures but both sealed ok and got me home fine without having to plug or reinflate. I'm going on a 4 day...
