    tire pressure gauge -- tubes versus tubeless

    any recommended tire pressure gauges for running tubes? would like to experiment with some differences, but have heard that the gauges are too inaccurate unless running tubeless -- any truth to this?

    Pressure gauges do not know if you are using a tube or not. The valves are the same.

    I prefer the Schwalbe Airmax Pro

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    ^what he said. The same gauges work. Accuracy can be an issue after a while, but that doesn't have to do with the tube vs no tube issue...just the calibration of the tool.
