I say both depending on context. “I have a Fox fork” “I adjusted my forks today” Lol

Tbh, I don’t know the width but they are not very wide. The tape covered from rim-wall to rim-wall so I think it wasn’t an issue They local bike shop was able to get them setup tubeless and I didn’t even think to ask about it! Already got one ride on ... more »

Well I dropped my bike off at the local shop yesterday to freshen it up and asked them to set up the tires Rode the hardtail yesterday and my buddy got a big thorn in his tire (which sealed because he’s tubeless). Hopefully they get it figured out because ... more »

I just dipped a toothbrush in some alcohol and scrubbed the whole channel from wall to wall. It definitely wasn’t saturated enough to come thru the spokes, but it’s a valid thought! I mounted the tires the next day so it was definitely dry. We never ... more »

Ha thanks man, I appreciate it..it would be very frustrating except that my neighbor and I both like to tinker around the garage. The original tires had sealant gummed all over the bead and we scrubbed them for maybe 45min and the tires had leaks all ... more »

I might try that. I’m thinking about double wrapping the gorilla tape first tho since I have plenty of it. The local bike shop told me they always do 2 wraps

Added reply in a thread Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/15/2020 10:36 PM

Interesting. I did put a piece of gorilla tape over one of the leaking spikes and it still leaked. I cut a very small “X” in the hole to get the tip of the valve in, and then pressed it thru snuggly. Here’s the valves. I’m not sure how deep ... more »

The rim bed was as clean as I could get it for sure. I used 1” wide gorilla tape as pictured in response to Big Bird. The rim looks to be in good condition, but they are second hand. The previous owner’s care was questionable tho after seeing Flubber ... more »

That is very understandable considering the tape texture, but we didn’t really muscle the tire. I put new tubes and the old tires back on yesterday and the tape looked good (although obviously leaking)

Added reply in a thread Tubeless Wheel Issues 5/15/2020 9:19 AM

I can assure you it wasn’t a rushed job wrapping the rim. I scrubbed the entire gap including the inner walls with alcohol and a new toothbrush. The tape had no rolls and was very centered around the perimeter. I’ve never heard of seating the ... more »

I’ve been wanting to do the tubeless set up this week. Long story short with the old tires..lol..I ended up buying a set of Maxxis tires (Assegai/DHR2) for my DT Swiss M1900 wheels. Wrapped them nicely (one wrap) with gorilla tape and got the bead to

Well I didn’t think I’d use mine much since I’ve always ridden a Large frame at 5’9”. My seat has always been pretty low in relation to the bigger frame for that reason. But it does make a difference, even a few inches! I practiced in the park with a ... more »

Added reply in a thread Adding Internal Dropper Post 5/8/2020 9:15 AM

Why wouldn’t they want a dropper post? Weight, money? I used to never adjust my seat so I didn’t know if I’d get a lot of use out of mine. When the option is on-the-fly at your fingertip tho, it’s really convenient. Probably gonna try some actual trails ... more »

Yessirrr, it arrived yesterday and I installed it. It ended up being $190, which wasn’t too bad. I rode around with a buddy yesterday and was surprised at how much I was using it lol

I made a similar post maybe 2 weeks ago with a $2500 budget Lol I’m kind of getting out of motocross tho and more into biking. You at Lackland? @sspomer suggested the Canyon Spectral (27.5) - I came very close to buying it, but a deal on a used Yeti ... more »

I found a KS Lev for right around $200. Potential crisis averted on the frame drilling haha thanks for all the input guys. I also came across a thread where someone did the exact same thing with the drilling, just for any curious minds out there

@mfoga, @westeegarden Interesting. I didn’t realize they made droppers that connected at the base like that. I pretty much see internals, and a few sloppy externals running up to beneath the seat. I like this idea better, but $300 is a bit steep! Are ... more »

So I’m wanting to add a dropper post to my Yeti SB95, but feel like the external droppers look sloppy. I’m considering drilling a small hole into the base of the seat tube and BB to route the cable under the bottom tube (and not interfere ... more »

No problem man, I get the appeal of the full suspension bike too. Keep your eyes open on OfferUp, Marketplace, Craigslist etc...-best of luck!
