AFAIK the Nano is the only 40 thats tubeless ready. The difference in rolling resistance between tubed and tubeless is magnified at lower pressures. Most midrange and above bikes are shipping with TL ready wheelsets. DIY or Stans kit.

40c Nano TCS and a Stan's kit ordered. I think the perfect tire might be the upcoming 36c Clement MSO tubeless, but until that exists we'll see how the Nano fares compared to the 33c tubed MXPs.

Nice setups lads.


LOL at engine building area.


I was thinkign about building a 1x drivetrain, but it doesnt seem to be worth it for my uses. i ride 99.9% road and its pretty flat here... there arent many dirt trails, so i would be doing something similar to emilio with road tires that are ok in the dirt.


I rode my carbon road bike on a dirt road last year with lots of loose gravel and rocks up to about fist size, and with 23c tire on the front... it really didnt like it. and I had to walk it up the climbs because it was too loose and the tire would just spin.

Even with dirt-able road tires, you can't stand on the steeper or looser stuff. Sitting though, I climbed a short section of 23% grade on loose hardpack a few times on the Sector 28's with about 80/90. Gruntastic.

Yeah. I probably unloaded the rear too much and was spinning too slow to have any kind of fluidity. I have almost forgotten how to ride (well) on dirt.

Fatbike upgrades:

Replaced the old handlebar with an eBay carbon bar and the post with a ebay 3T carbon one. Both add some poor man's suspension and take some weight off. Helps with a hard tailed, solid forked bike.


[IMG][/IMG]


Replaced the factory 4" heavy tubes with these Conti lites. Old tubes were about 488 grams each and rubber rim strips were 45g. The new tubes were around 130g and I just use the red nylon rim strip that covers the large holes in the rims to hold back the tube.
That's 50 grams shy of a full pound saved per wheel and it's right at the outermost part of the wheel so it feels like 5lbs. It rides much better now. Tubes held up to some abuse so far. Side note - i tried a regular conti tube and it split parallel to a seam. Split about a foot long, seems the thinner rubber stretches better.

Its 250 grams for the whole kit. Pf30 spindle, arms, spider and 39/53 rings.

I Caved. Bought '15 Tarmac Pro Disc Race. Real Pics Forthcoming. Excite.

Ignore:
a) Shitty Miata propping up bike
b) Test ride pedals : Real pedals are at home.
c) Still need to play with some fit optimization.

Quoted weight is ~480g for all of that. SISL stuff is crazy light, but your scale is way off

Seriously unimpressed with the whole tubeless deal so far. Rear tire dropped from 40psi on Thursday night to 20psi tonight, so it's leaking from somewhere. Front tire lost 20psi overnight, so I made a second attempt tonight with Stan's rim tape instead of Velox, ran it up to 60psi, and it completely deflated inside of 2 hours. I guess I assumed that it would be a lot easier than this since the rim and tire are both specifically tubeless compatible. Not quite ready to give up, but I'm getting close.

Have you pinpointed the leak source?

Also, did you ride on the tires at all after you set them up?

Something is astray in your setup for that to happen. Stans tape needs rim bed to be spotless clean, and it needs to be stretched tight on the rim bed. A light heat-gun to help the adhesive tack to the ano surface helps.

Typically I find that the wheels need to be rode almost immediately to seal up. It flexes the casing and helps the sealant fill all the micro pores in the tire casing. Tubeless compatibility is all in the bead design of a tire, not necessarily an air-tight sidewall. Next time do a few laps around the block after airing them up.

Wost case send them to me
