Best tubeless tire for a 210lb clydesdale

I have a love/hate relationship with the Clement PDX's that i've been running for the last 3 seasons. They're awesome when running them tubed, but tubeless is a bitch. At first I thought it was the…Continue

What do you think of this 200-pounder wheel build?

I'm a 190-200lb rider, but strength training is my primary discipline (and actually, my profession -- I'm a personal fitness trainer). So that said, I'm a powerful 200-pounder.I've realized that b/c…Continue

"Good review. I weigh 225#. I've run Trigger Sports 38c's down to 30’ish psi and lower with no problems except for maybe bottoming out over roots. Tracer Pro 33’s I need at 40 or a little more to avoid pinch flats. PDX' 33s…"

Specialized Tracer Pro (2Bliss Ready) thoughts after super sloppy race

Just thought I'd post a little diddy to let anyone who's curious about the Specialized Tracer Pro 2Bliss (tubeless) tires know how they've been treating me this year. I'm 220 and have them mounted tubeless with 2oz of Stans on Velocity a23 rims.Both tires mounted up SUPER tight. You better have thumbs of steel or you WILL need tire levers. Of course this is a good thing for a tubeless setup. For the record, I fought Clement PDX's all season with burps last year. Of course they also mount up on…See More

"I've gone the lazy way out this year after fighting to set up another set tubeless. I just got latex tubes which have a removeable core. Squirt in an ounce or so of sealant, put the core back in. Good to go. Yes, heavier than tubeless because I…"

"really? the a23 is problematic? how so? with its extrusion I've only heard that it works well as tubeless at low pressures. Damn, I hope I haven't been misinformed."

"Maybe the WTB Crosswolf?  I've heard the Vittoria XL is pretty quick rolling for a "mud tire" as well.   Out of curiosity - running the PDX tubed with butyl or latex?"

"I think people have reported that both the PDX and the a23 are problematic for cx tubeless as individual components. I'm not sure there are lot of tricks other than to change the rim or tire if you're having problems. I've tried an…"

Best tubeless tire for a 210lb clydesdale

I have a love/hate relationship with the Clement PDX's that i've been running for the last 3 seasons. They're awesome when running them tubed, but tubeless is a bitch. At first I thought it was the rims I was trying to mount them to, but even after having custom wheels using the Velocity a23's built up this year, I'm still having terrible luck with them and don't want to fight burping for a whole other season.I love the tread design of the PDX's and wanted to know if anyone had other…See More

"From what I have been reading about (same size and power rider like you) is that we should really have two sets of wheels. But with those two sets your best bet is to stick with similar width wheels as it will save you have to constantly re-adjust…"

"Ok, so I'm struggling with rolling a lighter rim with more spokes (like the a23) vs a heavier deep-v rim like the kinlin xr300 or velocity fusion, with better aero/strength qualities. I'm starting to think that this new set should just be…"

"As Keith Bontrager said, "Strong. Light. Cheap. Pick any two." A bit more hub weight isn't going to be all that noticeable while riding, and I'm guessing the extra weight won't be too big a problem for you... Shimano hubs…"
