 I know about sharpies on tyre logos, but how do you pretend you aren’t running a competitors sealant?

 if they get no flats, it will be really obvious

 @dtax: Yeah, the last (and only) time i used peatys it dried out and was useless, so it would be very obvious Smile

 MucOff is just a bad. Switched from Orange seal to MucOff and now my tires weep from the bead constantly.

 Stan's... After 6 months of no riding (due to injury) and the tires going flat, it was still liquid in my tire.

 @agnostic: 1 year on Muc-Off still wet inside & dry outside.

 Shhhh whisper it , I still use tubes. Ok I know I'm a Luddite but everyone I think of converting to tubeless I just read about the continual messing about it seems to be with , burping, leaking, not seating, valve issues , not enough/too much / drying out sealant, losing air... The problems go on and on.

I carry a tube on bike and can change one blindfolded as I've been doing it 30 years and fix the previous one to be used again.

I know I'm in the minority and probably the 'wrong' minority and maybe it's just because I've been lucky with punctures but can't bring myself to have weekly battles with sealant when I could be riding

 Man it's really not as hard as people make it out to be. Tape your rim well, don't make too large a hole for the valve stem and know that you're using far more sealant than you realize when riding. So make sure you're adding some every few weeks. Take the valve core out when seating the bead and most of the times a compressor isn't needed.

 I was right there with you for years. The. I had a season where it seemed like I got a pinch flat every ride. I must have started riding faster and hitting stuff harder?

So, last fall I converted to tubeless. It was a new skill set to learn, especially needing to pick up an airshot to seat tires, but I haven’t had to stop a ride to change a tube since and I‘ll never look back.

 @melanthius: ok that's good to know - particularly with pinch flats you're right.

 Like so many products these days, if you are not racing, the benefits are marginal.


Go with what you are happy and confident with, ignore the wannabe "ricers" Wink

 @Bustacrimes: that or you're still not doing it right.
Ha joking aside you wouldn't believe how great it is to both increase traction, and stop flattng.

 I remember when I was that guy...

 Been riding 30 years, went tubes 20 years ago, never looked back

 The benefits are not marginal... the traction gained from lower pressure is very noticeable and the “issues” with sealant are overblown comparatively.

 Tubes for life

 I'm, the laziest sod you'll ever see. Haven't had a flat in years and never have an issue with sealant or valves. A caveman can do it. I'm the only thing burping on my bikes. Use quality valves and sealant. Tubeless is to tire tech as droppers are to static seatposts.

 It’s easier than tubes. Takes maybe 2minutes longer to set up and then no flats. Boom done. Hands down the best single up grade you can do and it cost almost nothing. Give it a try

 @flaflow: I ride tubeless, but it sounds like this guy doesn´t need to. The benefits are marginal - did we not have fun on our bikes before inserts and tubeless?

 @Bustacrimes: I used to carry 10 spare tubes with me to the park, id come home with half of them. I may flat 1-2 times a yeaer now.

Sure we had fun, but the downtime was a killer.

 The valves don't have air holes coming out the sides in the tire, which means you can't use them with tire inserts. Surprising design flaw from a DH rider.

 Nothing a little 1/8" drilly drilly won't fix, amirite?

 Or using a better valve@iduckett:

 @freeridejerk888: Yea but that costs more money... Backwoods engineering should accomplish the same thing if you already have the valve...
