I have recently moved to Mexico for 3 months and after my first week of riding here i have had to patch my tire 12 times from being attacked by various cacti! :mad: will going tubeless stop getting all these flats? and inorder to change do i need new rims or just tires? also what tape/sealant works best? Thanks for your help.

I use duct tape on the outside of my tires for a seal, it is real hard to get it sealed at first but when you are done you get real good looking silver walled tires. It is best to put a few layers on as the join is a very weak point in this design.

There are 2 Mavic Crossmax disk, 1 Mavic 317 disk and 1 Alexrims DM18
Crossmax are already UST rims...just need the valve stems. They will work pretty much 100% with UST or Tubeless Ready tires.

As far as the other two rims, check out "Ghetto Tubeless" and "Gorilla Tape Tubeless" on Youtube.
