Hi, I recenetly bought a ETSX- Team mountain bike from ROcky mountain and i had a couple questions about it.
First of all, whats the differnce between a Regular tire and a Tubeless tire? The tire still looks like
it has a tube though, because i can see the presto valve. If you could please answer my question,
i would be very grateful

A tubeless tire has no tube. It requires a special rim, special rim tape and a special valve. Using the Stan's NoTubes system you can convert regular rims to tubeless but this requires adding a bunch gunk.

hmm, tell us your rim model, then we can know if your tyres are UST or tubes. Oh yeah and you need the presta valve to pump air into your tyre/tube whether its UST or not
