    Stans Arch Rim and Bontrager XR1 Team Tires

    I'm going to be mounting up a set of Bontrager XR1 Team tires onto a set of Stan's Arch rims and was wondering if anybody has had any issues with this. I'm going to be using this set up in a 40 mile point to point race in a few weeks which isn't technical.

    I was wondering if anyone has done this setup before and had any issues with mounting the tires or fixing flats? I tried using a Specialized Renegade tire and it was extremely difficult to even get the tire on and off the rim.

    29-3's (XR3's) on 355's. I needed tire levers to get them on, the fit was tight. Flipside is that I can run 18psi in the back (22psi F) and it's rock solid on the rim bead, no squirming, no movement, no burping.

    Thanks for the input guys. I don't know if I'm going to run that low of a psi for this race. This race is going to be fast paced, winner will average 20mph and I should be at about 15mph average for 40 miles. There will be a lot of sections where speeds hit 25-30 plus on some of the down hills.

    Have you guys ever had to fix a flat on the trail with these? Will a big air be enogh to reseat the bead? Or, will I have to put in a tube?

    I know Iím not going to win the race, but am shooting for a PR and bragging rights among friends and donít want to lose a lot of time if I do burp or flat a tire.
