Fantastic pirce, What does tubless ready mean?


you can run them tubeless (ie no inner tube) you'll need rim tape, a valve and sealant (stans, joes, orange or peatys are the better ones) and in my case alot of patience
one bike i've not had a puncture in 2 years riding proper offroad

The simplest way to think of tubeless tyres is to think about car tyres. They are tubeless.
Anyone recommend a decent hybrid tyre for a boardman mx bike. Thank

Right ok, so tubless ready just means tubeless, is that right? I was a bit concerned that tubeless "ready" might mean something different?

Cheers will take a look. Been using 35mm for width.
Thanks
I normally use 1.95 tyres for the width. Would these fit?
Just purchased a MTB Continental tyre priced at £18 (with delivery) - this is a good deal.

If it is a mtb frame they should fit , measure between your rear frame stays where the tyre sits the now and check the gap out

Right ok thank you
Tubeless tyres are a nightmare to get off if you have a blowout. I've gone back to non tubeless.

great deal - would have ordered if I hadn't already got the ones from Wiggle posted a day or two back.
I got old skool inner tubes.

I had a couple of puntures,so now I carry one of them sealant cans with compressed air for emergency.

Think they're great.
Saves carrying a pump and puncture repair kit with you (with all the hassle involved of removing the wheel,inner tube,patching up the hole etc.)

With tubeless and sealant inside,if you have a minor puncture then the tyre should still be ok as the sealant should repair the hole.
