    2019 Rift Zone tubeless issues

    just going to post this as a heads up for anybody it may apply to.
    would not have thought twice about this, until i saw 2 others who experienced this same issue with tire blowing off the rear wheel after going tubeless.
    if going tubeless with stock VeeTire....make certain you test that sucker prior to taking to the trails. my tire appeared fine for about 2 hours after conversion before it blew off the rim.
    myself... discarded the VeeTire and mounted maxxis tubeless on rear and have had no issues. front VeeTire is tubeless and its had no issues.

    my issue detailed here:

    from post on thread on PinkBike:
    "...not sure. I bought my bike slightly used and the original owner put a tube in the rear tire because he said the bead popped off shortly after he did the tubeless conversion. with my flow rims and maxxis tires there was no issue at all.."

    "...So my Missus' and I have both got a Rift zone 2 each. The tyres are not pre taped. I used gorilla tape and orange sealant and had no issues getting them to seat at all, with a compressor. However the rear wheel on my Missus' bike did blow off the rim and has had to be replaced, still pushing for warranty there."

    I bet you'd do the same if they was you!

    I didnít post about it but I had the same issue with the Vee tires.

    Swapped to some WTB tires and Iíve had no issues.

    The first time the bead blew off while airing the tire up the first time. Sealant was everywhere.

    Since I went to the WTBs Iíve had zero issues with the tubeless setup
