Tubeless Setup, Cleat Trouble, Wide Tires - Pinkbike
Question: Pinkbike user Nocturnal7x asked this question in the Mechanics' Lounge forum: I have Diamondback tubeless rims and Schwalbe's Hans Dampf tires, and I'm having trouble setting them up tubeless. I got one side of the tire off the rim with immense difficulty to take the tube out, and while I can get the tire back on, I can't get it into a position where the bead should seat and seal up. How does this work? Every video I've watched shows it effortlessly popping back on compared to the nonsense that I'm going through.
Question: Pinkbike user @skierdude52689 asked this question in the Bikes, Parts & Gear forum:Got a new pair of 5.10 Hellcat Pros, my old ones were beat. Tried to ride today, didn't even make it to the lift before I couldn't clip out, fell next to my Jeep! Not to mention clipping in was incredibly difficult.
I tried switching between 15/20 degree release settings and that didn't help. I had to twist my foot SO much I was twisting the cleat itself. Anybody else have issues with these shoes? I'm thinking the cleat mounting position is too recessed into the sole, making the pedal pins rest on the shoe too much. So during clip out the pedal pins are engaged into the sole of the shoe.
Magic Mary 2.6", plus tire or big DH tire?
Question: Pinkbike user @Luneec asked this question in the 27.5/650b: Has anyone had any experiences with the new Magic Mary in 27.5 x 2.6? Is it a plus version of the Mary or is it real DH rubber with a big volume casing? Also, would it still fit through the arch of a Yari fork?
