Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Can't hurt to try it on a SurRon. That's thing. I shared that it has been 2,300 trouble-free tubeless miles for me. :roll: If I was like "can I run tubeless for the next 2,300 miles", then it might make sense to say "it might be OK" or it "can't hurt to try". :lol:

What is possibly not OK?
Pulling the tire off the rim enough in a corner for it to go (nearly)instanly fat. :shock:
I've ridden over 2,300 miles and as I stated its never been an issue so its curious that someone would say that I might be OK.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

OK just being that the tire will stay on the rim. At that psi I've not had any issues. As for spinning and not breaking a seal, I'm skeptical, but maybe. If you really need to run such low pressure, "Tubliss" is probably better for you - supposedly you can run all the way down to 0, thoug...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Rim locks Pareto keep the tire from spinning on the rim, which does indeed rip the stems off. However, even spinning a tire without a tube in it is not great. I've limped home on flats (before going tubeless) with 0psi so I know about spinning. I'd expect it to slip a little which like I said is im...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Any idea how to seal the rim lock?? I run rim locks on all my wheels and I'd love to go tubeless but don'y know how I'd seal that. Thoughts?? My understanding (and of course I could be wrong) was that rim locks are primarily to prevent valve stems from tearing. That is not possibly an issue with tu...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Sup y'all! So after over 2,300 tubeless miles it was time to replace my trusty Bridgeport M403 with the newer M203. The first tubeless conversions I had to use a strap around the tire to get enough of a seal for the tire to inflate. It really was the most pain-in-the-ass task in the whole procedure...

Nice. It should last a long time in the snow. Maybe you can clear your driveway with it?
Thanks. Most my miles are on dirt but yeah.

For clearing my driveway I prefer to use my hot spring water. 8)

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I think you take the word "best" to literally. For him to literally use the word best he would have to try every tire possible - which of course is a ridiculous notion. But for him to call it the best, I was just expecting the video to test more than one possibility. So, I just found the ...

Words are supposed to have meaning.

A more accurate title for the video would be "Good Tires" or "Better Tires", but using "Best Tires" is definitely more click baity than the more honest titles.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Let me get this straight, you are running a M403 19" 70/100 size front and rear? What size rims are you using? Front: Maxxis Maxxcross IT 70/100-19 Back: Bridgestone M403 70/100-19 Stock rims. I believe this tire is discontinued so this would be a M203 now? That is what Rix said, with a slight...

You have to be doing some serious riding or racing if you are having cornering issues with traction.
Actually all it takes is patches of sandy, soft, loamy, muddy, snowy, icy to make corning a top concern. I thought your name was "Offroader"?

Someone who claims to know what the best tires are for everyone should know that. Missed that, again, link me to a post where I am telling everyone what the best tires are. You keep saying this but are not showing me the posts. Then you show me a post where I said, "probably the best tire"...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The sur-ron does not have alll that much power and no gears, so you have to decide if a 3.5" tire will offer anthing but added unsprung weight. I'm not having traction issues with my 3" tire, hard to justify a 3.5" tire. It's not just about traction from power. It's also about corner...
