Re: Tubless: one perfect, one keeps loosing pressure

Found it.

Valve. I haven't stripped it down yet but it seems to be revolving in the rubber bed thingy which probably has a proper name....

Will have to wait a week now as I'm off playing :)

Re: Tubless: one perfect, one keeps loosing pressure

Tubless: one perfect, one keeps loosing pressure

Hi folks, any ideas why this might be: Just done a Tubeless job on my touring bike. Same everything front and back. Front perfect. Rear slowly drops pressure over a few days and needs pumping up before a ride. It's fine on the ride of about an hour and seems fine at the end. Then a couple of days la...

Re: Tubeless: how does this rim work?

It's hard to tell from the photo, but that may be what is currently called a hookless rim (the old terminology was straight sided rim). They can't hold high pressures and are really only useful or safe when used with low pressure, wide tubeless tires like what comes on mountain bikes. Hookless desc...

Heavy duty kick stand any ideas?

This is not an area that I have any experience in.

I'm heading towards a fat bike cargo bike and was thinking about a heavy duty kick stand. I'd be looking to braze on a dedicated plate for this.

What should I be looking for?
