    newbie tire question

    How do i tell if a tire is tubeless? Can i eyeball it and tell? My tire is a Bontrager T1 700X23c. Bought a lightly used 2011 Trek Lexa and it has factory wheels and tires. Bontrager and Trek sites do not say if it is tubeless. I know nothing about bikes really. I bought the bike to start riding for fitness.

    Here's a cross section of the different types. Notice the valve is installed in the tubeless rim as opposed to being in the tube.
    I've also reported the thread to be moved to a more appropriate forum where it's more likely to be seen. This particular forum doesn't get much traffic and is intended for topics involving disabled riders.
