Reynolds assaults and tubeless???

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Reynolds assaults and tubeless???

Just picked up a set of Reynolds Assaults and Schwalbe one tires for my cannon dale ss evo. Iím thinking about going tubeless, has anyone ran tubeless on these wheels or in general? Would you recommend staying with tubes? I run tubeless on my mb and love it, so I thought I would try it out on my rb.

Iím running Continental Force/Attack tubeless with my Reynolds AR 58/62 FB wheels on my Canyon. Itís a new set up but so far itís working out great. Took me a few rides to get used to the lower tire pressures needed with tubeless after riding tubes forever.

If you already have tubeless ready wheels and tires, try it out yourself. Itís a low financial risk experiment.

Iím running tubeless on Ultegra 6800s and Mavic wheels (both sets with Yksion Pro UST tires). I havenít run them long enough, but so far Iím enjoying the low-pressure ride comfort and lower rolling resistance (very noticeable on my Ultegras conversion). At about 500 miles, no flats. If I can keep the maintenace at home (sealant, plugging, patching, etc.) and not on the road I will be sold.

I ran tubeless on my Assaults for a season. Went to the Pro One tyres and Stan's sealant. Loved the setup. Tyres rode brilliantly. The only reason I told the wheels is because I bought a new bike with disc brakes. Had I not bought a new bike, I'd still be riding the tubeless Assault setup.

As an aside, the fellow I sold the wheels to decided to ride the Assaults with a tyre/tube. After flatting a bunch of times on the same ride, he switch over to a tubeless setup and he's been happy ever since.

I run my Assaults tubeless. The first few sets of tires were a learning experience (okay, they were a bit of a *****), but mounting/unmounting has been great as my experience has grown and technique improved.

With a couple of flats that required a tube (and possibly a boot), I will say that I've had a hard time getting the beads to seat properly. I obviously have limited experience in this regard, so take it with a grain salt, but I've seen one or two others express the same thing online.

I've found that having a spare tire, mounted with a tube on an old wheelset, makes things much easier in the future.

I appreciate the info! Iíll plan on running them Tubeless for now and see how it goes. I always carry an extra tube with me so that shouldnít be an issue.
