No I guess not, except never had tubed wheels before just a little concerned about speed of deflation which I believe is faster. If any one could shed any light on this it would be gratefully receivedAnd is this a deal breaker on the wire wheels for you?
I have a deposit on a Classic but...........
My brother in law has experienced deflation first hand and it wasn't pretty.yup, deflation is the issue.
too bad they had to go this route.
Dont worry, i had and have since more than 20 years some bevel-driven Ducs,all with tube-type tires,and never had a problem.My brother in law has experienced deflation first hand and it wasn't pretty.
He now wouldn't ride a bike with a tubed tyre and is trying to get me to change my choice.
Now they must run the same tyre as the other models so.......if the tube bursts surely the air still has to get out of the tyre and spoke holes.....not like a spontaneous deflation of a tube in an old fashioned tyre made for tubes.....
Or shall I just shut up?!
Reliability is one of the main reasons to consider a tubeless system. Yes, they are often more complicated to set up initially than a conventional tube system, but the payoff is peace of mind. I have not had a flat on my road bike in 4 years. I will repeat that I have not had a flat in the four years I have been riding tubeless. I have not had a training ride interrupted, I have not frozen by the side of the road, and I have not had to call for a ride home. I have stopped many times and helped people I have been riding with fix their flats (I recall one guy who flatted three times on the same ride), but I have not had a flat with my tubeless system.
