.....on tires and where to get! :thumbsup: Do you run your tires tubeless?Rillburgher said:JMac, Here is one shopping option that I've used with no problems:
I've only recently gone tubeless, but on a set of Mavic SL's w/tubeless specific tires. I'm a light/somewhat nimble rider, so except for a set of DT wheels that seem to be pinchflat prone, I do pretty well on reg setup with tubes @ 28-30 psi. Probably will go with 355's for hoops, starting with one set up for the front @ first.Rillburgher said:yup, tubeless w/Stan's sealant on Stan's ZTR 355 rims. Those three tires mentioned have fit the rims great. I also experiment with tubes at times, especially up front. The Nev2.1 with tube has a more solid feel than tubeless, but it's hard to describe... with a tube it feels like I can 'bludgeon' the trail and scrub past serious bumps or 'issues' if I wind up off line. The bike 'squares off' a blown turn more predictably. Tubeless the Nev feels sticky and sort of gummy, less a weapon of trail destruction and more a nimble operator, grippier maybe, but a little flighty unfortunately. Possibly I need to experiment with more air pressure. With the Neo 2.3, the tube just makes it feel sorta heavy; it flat out destroys with or without a tube. As seems pretty much universally agreed, the Neo is an awesome AWESOME front tire.
Use the pricematch on universal cycles- both of the Nev's went down a substantial bit which opened the door to spend more to get to 100 bucks and use the VIP10 for 10% off.JMac47 said:.....on tires and where to get! :thumbsup: Do you run your tires tubeless?
JMac (getting closer to running them bigger wheels)
Tubeless? at that psi. I could probably roll 12psi since I run about 135# !umarth said:Use the pricematch on universal cycles- both of the Nev's went down a substantial bit which opened the door to spend more to get to 100 bucks and use the VIP10 for 10% off.
My Nev 2.1 got a slow leak yesterday and I couldn't bothered to pump it up since I only had a few miles left, but the grip was good, rolled well and was really plush. What is the lowest psi somebody has run for the Nev with tubes? I'm guessing I was around 25ish, but it might be a little low for a 190 pounder...
