    16" Tires tubeless? Spawn Bike

    Hi guys, my little guy has a 16" Spawn Yoji and I was wanting to set it up tubeless for various reasons.

    Is there any reasons this would not be possible?

    It'll either work, or it won't. Probably have to be ghetto tubeless though as the chances of the wheels/tires seating at the rim bead well are very slim...never heard of 16" wheels or tires that are tubeless compatible.

    Good luck.

    Depends on the rim profile. You've got nothing to lose but time and clean clothes

    Let us know how this works out. I've been thinking of trying it on my son's Flow - BTW his bike is up and running now and he loves it!

    Was thinking about trying on the new 16" we have on the way: did you try / did it work? If so, what valves / tape did you try?
