Not once you get the hang of it. Just like anything new you have to learn. I’d say now installing a tube is more of a pain than putting a new tyre on tubeless

No way running a tube is more of a pain. I run my rear tubeless..you have to make sure the tape is good, pour messy, overpriced sealant in, make sure the bead seats, pump the hell out of it (I don’t have an air compressor), hope it seats, listen for escaping air. Makes a mess. Just annoying as hell.
A tube I just put in and pump. Done. Plus IMO a tubed front feels good...little extra dampening.

Man, it's like you're riding in 2009. When you come up to Highland we'll get you set up for the 2020's.

Lol. I run a tubeless rear. Im not opposed to tubeless. I just acknowledge it’s not as convenient as running a tube. I will be at highland may 15-17th. Provided they are open.

I’m assuming you run a wireless drivetrain? If not what are you waiting for? It’s like your riding in 1983.

Awesome. Thanks for the info. I’m 185-190ish. I will try your recommendation. I don’t run the front tubeless so that may alter the psi I run it at

Why don’t you run tubeless in the front? I’ve found nothing but huge benefits all around with tubeless.

Tubeless is a pain in the ass

Why am i not surprised
