Post TUbliss???
Hey guys, I saw this advertised in ADB magazine and in theory it looks really good. But for a hundred bucks per wheel plus freight from the states, it would want to be worth its weight in gold. Just wondering if anyone has heard of it, tried it, or is using it now? What do you think?

they have been around for a while saff, but imo you'd be better off with moose tubes than using the tubliss system for trail riding....a no air system guarantees no flats regardless of conditions. The tubliss system vs moose would both have their benefits but both can be a pita when fitting compared to the humble standard HD tube. Running moose tubes leaves you with the only issue that would stop you would be flat spotting a rim and there would be no need to carry a spare tube, CO2 canisters, levers or a pump.

I run mousses and really like them as I can ride anywhere without a fear of a flat except longer distance high speed as the mousses I have apparently dont like that but they are significantly dearer again and require regular maintenance. Hopefully Dave will chime in as I recall getting some good advice from him about the benefits of tubliss. Perhaps HD or UHD tubes with a bit of goo in them would be good for average trail riding, thats what I run in my DR and Tiger

Arent moose tubes ridiculously heavy? And can you still alter pressure for different terrain with them?

I know how to change tubes just fine, it was more a question of unsprung weight than serviceability. Ended up just putting michellin HD tubes in. TUbliss looks good in theory but I question its reliability or the potential repercussions if that 100PSI section let go.

with tubless you run the chance of tearing a tyre. and its easier then you think when it happends you pretty much have a flat to run home on.

Moose tubes hate long distances and you need to lube them up at intervals. so you are limited to riding in places an do wear over time. so you will have to replace the moose eventually.

tubes you stick them in you get a flat change it. ripe a tire, can dodge it up with a new tube,

i under the idea of unspun weight. but tubes arnt really that heavey :D

yeah that's kinda what I figured. plus, dirtbike tyres aren't really designed to hold air pressure and support the weight of the bike on their own, cant be good for the sidewall. So HD tubes it is. Do you run slime in yours as well Shane?

Those tubeless tyre kits sound good don't they. Don't know of anyone who has used them. Heavy duty tubes are the go. Talcom powder dusted all over the tube and inside the tyre not only gives a lube effect, but it also draws out any moisture build up from water crossings and puddles and keeps things cool.
