    Gazza Extreme 294

    I just picked up a pair of studded tires and wanted to know if people had successfully set them up tubeless? I currently run all of my bikes tubeless on flow rims. Thanks for any input.

    I've heard reports that people have managed to run these tubeless, but I tried and failed. Couldn't get the tire to seal up to the rim.

    I just set up a pair on Bontrager Duster's with the Bont strip...it was painless.
    I asked the same question a few weeks ago and basic reply was no problem

    Thanks Mayor. I should have done a search.

    What rim are you using?

    I was going to put the Nokians on a Arch with yellow tape...it aired up fine...but I like it better on the wider Bontrager which is about the same size as the Flow

    Set-up was a snap. Now to take them for a spin.

    Dt x470 which aren't tubeless or ust rims. I tried the gorilla tape method with no success. Maybe it would have worked with either a stan's rim strip or the inner tube ghetto method.
