    I have S-XC2 29er wheels with Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 width. I've been running these tubeless for 2 years with no problems. The Notubes website specifies the "Flow kit" for these wheels, & that's what I used. I needed to use a home compressor & remove the valve core to get them to seat. Once seated, they have been no problem. I'm running 21-24 psi. Great grip on wet roots & rocks on our local trails.

    I'm thinking of putting the new Nobby Nic 29x2.6 on the front, but I'm worried it's too wide on this rim, with only 19mm internal width. Any opinions?

    I am set up the same but on 27.5 wheels. I think I will get a wider wheel set before getting 2.6" tires though as i want to run low pressure and maximize volume. 29 id or maybe the new Stan's S1 sentry at 32 id.

    I'll probably upgrade the bike before I'd replace just the wheel set. Was hoping to get just a little more trail grip by going a bit wider on the front. But maybe it just can't happen with these narrow rims.

    Fair enough. I am drooling over a fazzari timp peak but it's just a dream at this point.

    I'm checking out Salsa Pony Rustler/Horse Thief. Not quite a dream - maybe a mirage or hallucination.

    Does anyone know if the 2016 p-xc2 wheels can be converted to boost (specifically the rear) like the 2017 xc2 wheels? And are these the same wheels?

    Maxis Ardent EXO TR tires with the Stan's rim strip mount right up and inflate with a floor pump!

    I previously had Kendra's and they were a nightmare even with a compressor. The new ones are a dream.

    Hi, I wanted to convert on my 2016 Talon 0 but I have no plan what to do. First: What tape size should I order? 21? 25? Also is something like the Schwalbe Tubeless easy kit alright or should I get the Stans Notubes stuff with the rim strip valves?

    Will the Rapid Robs that are on the bike work with tubeless? And last but not least do I need to drill anything or is it possible to avoid that?
    Thanks y'all

    Hilarious. How do you manage daily life, like looking up phone numbers or finding places where you only know the adress of?

    To answer your question I think there was a thread once focusing solely on the P-XC/S-XC wheelset with all the answers to your questions, it was somewhere in this very forum, I cannot see it right now but it must be close, real close...

    Thanks for helping...
    Alright so let me ask you a different question: Is it worth to get the 60€ Stans flow kit over the 35€ Schwalbe Tubeless easy kit?

    I'd buy the Schwalbe set together with another 500ml bottle of Fluid.

    Does anyone have any information and weights on the XC1, XC2 and XC3 wheelset that have been appearing on the 29" 2017,2018 bikes?

    So just a quick update, got the Schwalbe stuff, installed the tape but the Rapid Rob doesn't even get bothered by my pump so either I need a compressor which I don't have and won't buy only for that or the RR is just not tight enough for tubeless on this wheel

    mhmm you're not the only person worldwide who's in this dilemma.

    google Schwalbe Air shot.

    Someone should eventually start paying me here for my genius ideas...

    I've seen those things but for that money I could just buy a set of tubeless ready wheels. Still considering a getto booster though

    Okay so new tires are 60€ (Nobby nic) but a booster is probably a use once item right? Tubeless ready wheels will probably not need it so it's 50€ for one use and even then no guarantee the RRs will go up

    probably, yes. The booster comes prefilled with air. You boost one tire and then you throw the booster away. Pretty damn expensive. I wish there was a way to refill it with air or something

    And apart from dozens of user reports and videos on YouTube that show the device in action there's no real guarantee that the booster will indeed work, don't take your chances buddy.

    Ich sehe du bist aus Deutschland. Der Booster kostet 42€ bei bike24 und Konsorten und ist natürlich wiederverwendbar. Alles weitere gibts auf YouTube zum ansehen wenn Lesen nicht so deine Stärke ist.

    Ging mir eher drum dass ich den Booster nur einmal brauche weil Tubeless Reifen eigentlich auch mit Handpunpe funktionieren sollten und der Booster dementsprechend nur für die aktuellen Reifen nötig wäre

    Verstehe die Logik dahinter nicht.
    Du willst also sagen dass nachdem du die 2 Reifen mit Hilfe des boosters montiert hast du ihn nie wieder brauchen wirst? Das Rad mit den 2 tubeless montierten Reifen verwendest du bis an dein Lebensende?

    Also wie ich das bisher gesehen habe bleibt der Reifen wenn er einmal sitzt drauf, zum einfüllen von Docblue dann einfach den Ventilkern entfernen. Und wenn ich dann irgendwann neue Reifen brauche kaufe ich halt welche mit Tubeless easy, die sollten dann auch mit der Standpumpe draufgehen

    das hört sich jetzt so an wie wenn dass ein Fakt wäre? Wenn du dich im Internet nicht einlesen willst oder kannst, spätestens bei der Standpumpen Montage wirst eh draufkommen.

    Can someone tell what type of bearings are in Giant Trance SXC-2 2016 27.5" wheelset hubs? As far as I know front wheel has sealed cartridge bearings, but I'm not sure about rear wheel. I can't find any official info. Thanks for the answers.

    The rear is not sealed but front may be. I just fixed the bad play in my rear hub by tightening the cone nut and flushed with penetrant and repacked it with Krazy grease. She's good now.

    no it's not...

    I don't even own the wheelset but the answer is in this very thread (how convenient) and can be found via search function (not by everyone obviously)

    see post #446

    Thread search is not specific to this thread or if it is its intuitive to the point of uselessness. Nothing personal it's just bad coding.

    I see. Thread search function specific to thread is only accessible for me then, I'm privileged.

    Sometimes when nothing works I actually need to bring my big gun:
    www.google.com
    "SXC-2 thru axle"

    So these Giant wheels are not only narrow, heavy and slow engaging, they also are non-convertible. How pre-historic.

    Giant really needs to up their game here.
    Agreed! Knowing what I know now, quality wheels will be a higher priority consideration on my next bike purchase. Interestingly it looks like not much change in the 2017 Giant wheels.

    since you don't state your bike frame or front fork this question is impossible to answer
