Tubeless questions


Recommended Posts

Looking to convert ghetto style(20" bmx).


Why does everyone use presta valves?

If my rim has a small dent, should it be straightened first?

Dent is at the top of rim wall. "Someone" used a 13mm spanner to remove tyre while he was in a hurry.

Dent's not too bad. Will give it a shot then.

Ghetto is the way to go. Works like a charm. Can be a serious mission getting the tyre back onto the rim over the bmx tube, especially with UST tyres. Don't forget to be pretty generous with Stans and use some soapy water.

Will do thanks.

I'm just waiting to place a crc order for new tyres, as my rear tyre has a few cuts from rocks and stuff.
