Hi got some one tubeless 23, it says 30ml of doc blue sealent per road tyre, on videos I've watched like gcn it shows them putting loads in, don't want to get caught out with a puncture as I don't think I can get tube in, got mine off bike discount.de £28.

I use 30 ml per tyre... if you get a big puncture that sprays before sealing, top it up when you get home, with another 10-15

I just use 30ml as well. Seems plenty to me as.

Went out for the first time yesterday, on my 25mm One tubeless tyres. They feel really quick and roll with a lovely hollow sound. Ride was good, but not as good as I was expecting in comparison to my 25mm Pro4Es. Although, I was probably runnning them with too high pressures and will drop them down 10% or so next time.

Has anyone ever added Stans to a conventional tube in a road tyre? Is there any perceived risk in doing that other than adding some extra weight. Having used this method for Cyclocross I was wondering whether it is feasible for a clincher running at 100psi for that extra protection.

Well I have :oops: and it works, just unclear whether it's a risk. The bottle says it's suitable for use in inner tubes so technically I can't see an issue. Was wondering whether someone could suggest a reason not to, else for training in winter it does appear to make sense.

No reason not to. In the long run it might gunk the inner tube, but an inner tube cost 3 quid, so it's a non issue

Yes that was my logic, the stuff works wonders for Cross tubs and protects the investment and time needed for a Dugast or equivalent so used inside a road wheel inner it is certainly worth considering.

I have sealant in my tubs. After getting a huge handful of hawthorns in my mtb tyre and it sealing rhea, I am getting tubeless tyres next time round on the roadie.
I tried converting my tyres like on a mtb till I found the info on stans site saying not too.

How many miles do people seem to be getting out of the Schwalbe Ones?

I've just ordered a pair of 28s from Bike 24 ready as a spare for when the current ones need replacing, I fancy giving the Hutchinson Sector 28 a go but the price is still so good on the Schwalbe Ones at the moment it's hard not to stick with them.

On the Italian forums they rave about the Hutchincon Atom Galactik which at the moment are 28 pounds on CRC... only 23 mm though

"How many miles do people seem to be getting out of the Schwalbe Ones?"

Believe Steve Abraham is using them in his "Tommy Goodwin" record attempt so that should provide some useful data

Thanks for the info.

If I get close to 2000 miles then that's Ok with me, I may have to have a look at some reviews on the Atom Galactik model.

Cheers.

Just ordered Schwalbe One's in 25c and sealant from starbike. They were 35Eur each

Crafty Germans put an extra 5er on the 25c ones! :(

Ribble offering nice prices on Ones, but no stock.

Don't you just love when they do that?

Yeah, the "show all availability" link on PX should really be renamed "Engage disappointment".
