  1. I ride mostly skatepark so in terms of pressure im a little higher than ali. 45 minimum really. In the latest tubless vlog ali made he put the pressures down to 30psi and it still worked great - worth a look on his youtube. For the tape i probably went a little wide but its seemed to work. Ran it completly from rim edge to rim edge making sure i had stuck it to the metal as tightly as possible. Presta isnt as accesable as shrada valves but you can get an adaptor and put it in your pocket - fashioning one might be difficult to make it air tight.
  2. Surprisingly when i went to the bike this morning it was still fully inflated no tubeless liquid anywhere (could be because the tyres are like 3 months old). So looks like its gone well. Went for the first ride this afternoon and it feels completely different to before but i like it. Makes the bike feel very nimbal. As for the foam it was very time consuming cutting it so next time will leave it if its worked for you! Thanks for the advice
  3. After watching Ali clarkson's second vlog showing how impressive the tubless system is I decided to get the supplies ordered to give it a test myself. Watched his previous video showing how he converted it and got to work. Supplies: orange seal tubeless liquid £15 closed cell foam 1 metre X 1 metre (could do 4 more wheels with the remainder of the foam) £18 gorrilla tape (used as rim tape) £6 and tubless valves £5 so for a total cost of £44 I have reproduced the system used and tested by Ali and couldn't be happier. Here are some of the steps in photos: although I need to wait until the morning to see if my tyres are still inflated so far I'm very chuffed with how simple it was to convert. Thought I'd write this to nudge anyone on the edge of trying it themselves. So far so good and would insist that you give it a go. I'll keep this updated too in case anything happens
  4. I'm only 16 I can't get a car
  5. Majority of the time they're riding MTB at local Forrest. The rest of it they end up damaging property or causing issues for people and not riding so tend to stay away now (just to keep out of trouble). Frankies in hull but not sure if he has his bike. I'm free every Sunday for rides. So whenever your free
  6. Had a group of us at one point but I'm the only one left still riding trials. Anybody in or around Hull, York, Bridlington, Scarborough or even near them fancy a ride?
  7. I'm running 55/60 psi though with riding skatepark the majority of the time. I don't want to change tyres but I hate the feel of them when riding when they deform. After doing what you said @Dman they seemed a slight bit better but just gonna have to do it a few more times until I get it spot on.
  8. That's what I'm on. Race33's it's happened on other rims too. Thanks. I'll just keep playing around with them. It's just annoying when riding
  9. Will general soap work? I struggle to get it to "pop" on? What sort of pressure am I to be pumping into it?
  10. Put some new Air king contis on my bike about a month ago now. Rode these tyres for years. theyre perfect until they take a hard hit. The tyre folded off the rim and look extremely buckled (lateral) when riding. I've had the tyres off and put them back on again back up to 60 psi. They stay looking true for a few hours and then go back to looking bucked. The wheel is true. Can anybody help. This has happened before and I just left it.
  11. Thank so guys it's 100% trials ss. It does say it on the shell. It's the through axle one. As long as it can be converted i don't have a problem. Will a pro2 evo "bolt in" conversion work? Thanks again
  12. Got a pro4 rear trials ss hub through work. When it's come the hub isn't "bolt in" which is what I need for my arcade. It's a 10mm through axle. I know you can convert hope hubs. But is it possible to convert it from a through axle to a bolt in? Looked from top to bottom online and can't find anything useful
  13. Thanks for the reply mark. That's great. I'll have a look at that one now.
  14. Can anyone recommend a strong!!! 15 t Chainring to fit a hope pro4 hub? Wanted Chris king but is unavailable. And also, a lockring too!
  15. I think it's only a winter thing with the bike getting extremely dirty on every ride. I never use a power washer though
