    Tire Options?

    I'm experiencing too many pinch flats at the moment after switching to a single ply tire. I previously used dual ply for the last bunch of years and wanted to lose weight. I now use soem Nobby Nics (Schwalbe). I love the tires except the pinch flats. I am looking to make a change.

    Either back to dual ply, heavier tubes or tubeless? Not sure which to go for. Any thoughts?

    Tubeless schwable 2.35 tires. ~1000g/Tire for the more dh'ish tires and they are not single ply . Also running them tubeless means no tubess so not only a bit lighter but also no pinch flats

    norbar,

    would that be like a muddy mary? or the UST nobby nics? 1000 g without a tube doesn't sound bad at all.

    Will my rim be any better protected with tubeless? Currently they are getting worked, although they seem to be made of cheese (next upgrade for sure).

    There are some new tires for 2010. Nobby nic is avreage at best. I've seen some of their new tires at schladming wc and they have 4 models in gooey gluey compound. Wicked Will, Muddy Marry and 2 others that are aimed at dh. There should be some info about them if you look good enough as they have a printed catalogue already. (haven't checked their site )

    They don't seem to be much different from the old ones and if they didn't change the compounds they'll still won't be the best option for wet tracks littered with roots.
