Screw Tire Tubes
I can't handle it any more. it is driving me mad. Last trip out had a puncture. managed to seal it well enough with tire sealant and pumping it up every few hours. now i am home looking to a permanent fix. got the tire off the bead on one side, pulled the tube out, patched ...but I CANNOT GET THE F***G tire back on. i fought with it a month ago when i switched the stocker out for a kenda 270? I cannot imagine how anyone would do this trail side. maybe someone can check the tire dimensions for me , i will post tonight. I will be going tubeless some how. can you still get knobbies tubeless? can i just seal my rim and use the same tire. my rim is now all scraped to S**T from the pry bars. Am i the only one that has had this problem. I have fixed plenty of flats in tubeless tires and i don't curse half as much. i already carry a pump and corks. Is there any advantage to tubed tires???? i know there are poeple on here saying 'why would you want tubeless?' maybe it is just this kenda or maybe they havfe never changed a tire other than taking it to a shop. i ride off road a lot. Your thoughts???
