    Evo tubeless question

    Just received my Evo and was interested in going tubeless but having trouble getting one of the beads outside of the rim to remove the tube. Does anyone have any tips that wont scratch up my rims?

    On a side note of going 1x10 has there been a standard size NW ring people are going with? I think I have seen a lot of people going for the 32t?

    Thanks

    Check out the link above... It's from Pinkbikes tech tuesdays on how to change a tube and should help you out.

    I am running a 30T chainring and its awesome. I ride in the southeast and there is a lot of climbing so I opted for the 30T. I still find my self pushing the shifter hoping I have one more gear left, but my legs have gotten a lot stronger since I've made the switch to 1x10.

    Thanks for the link. I ended splitting a wooden clothespin into 2 to use as a tire lever, it worked perfect.

    Not sure what size NW I would need in central FL not much climbing, just the occasional patch of sand.

    I just moved to FL from GA an I run a 32t on my Evo. I had no problems in GA so I think I'm good here.

    Did you need spacers? or just bolt it on and good to go?
