Everything about building wheels, glueing tubs, etc.
Mounted some different (new) tired on these rims. The non-TRL Pirellis were way too lose. Not even passable. The Conti 5000 28 TLR are VERY tight. Tough to mount them with a lever even minus rim tape. Somewhere, I'll find the perfect temperature for the 3 bears poridge.

I have ridden 8000km on the hookless version of Light Bicycle RR36C02 wheels. I run them with tubes. Started on a used set of Conti GP4000 II 28mm, then Compass 28mm, and now S-Works Turbo 28mm. I run 55/60psi. Tight to mount, it's important to get the tyre in the centre channel to be able to get the bead over the rim. I've only punctured twice. I bought a TyreKey and that helps with getting tight tyres on.
It'll be fine, tubeless tires generally sit tighter than tubed. I run 25mm One Tubeless and Pro One for several years on my hookless LB rims without any issues.
Thanks for the feedback. If I end up running them with tubes, I'll likely ride with my TyreKey as well. I have Tubolitos since it's actually less weight to ride with tubes in that case.emotive wrote: ↑Thu Feb 28, 2019 6:19 amI have ridden 8000km on the hookless version of Light Bicycle RR36C02 wheels.

You'll get those test miles in a lot sooner than me! I mounted some Trickstuff rotors, Ti rotor bolts. However, I have to wait for my Silca tubeless tape to arrive.
Pressure seems kind of high for your weight? I'm 84kg and run the same or less with tubes on 25mm tyres?Morkai wrote:I'm also looking to the new Extralites for my new wheels (or Bike Ahead biturboRoad), but I'll wait with the decision until reviews for the new Rotor One groupset are out (if any...)
Currently I have around 6k km on hookless Hunt 50 Carbon Aero Disc running tubeless Schwalbe Pro One 25mm and I dread the next time I'll have to replace the tyres.
Not because it's hard to fit new tyres, but because it's increadibly hard (and messy) to remove the old ones (last time I had to ask for help someone with arms 2x bigger than mine )
I'm 62 kg and usually running 72 PSI front and 79 PSI rear. After fitting new tyres I pump them to ~90 PSI and leave them overnight (without any sealant). If they are still rock hard the next day, I deflate them, pour some sealant and pump back to my desired pressure.
I've had one tiny hole in the front that did not seal properly (not enough sealant left I think) 20 km from home and managed to ride back safely (later checked and the pressure went down to 29 PSI).
But they supposedly have a 'special tech' for securely fitting tubeless ready tyres and are recommending Schwalbe Pro One.
well, im still alive! wheels are lovely, feel feathery light compared to the boat anchors i have (Enve 3.4 with formula hub weighed almost 1600g), in reality they are wheels which felt good! They look great on my Cervelo R5 and gets the bike to 6.1kg which for a disc bike to great.
