You can't pinch flat tubeless...there's nothing to pinch. You burped it I guess?
Nope. Pinch-flating is not that difficult, even though Stan's and MBA will have you believe otherwise. You can put a hole in the side wall of a tire if you hit it against an object.
Rubber Tire - (meeting) - Object - (and in the way is a) - Metal Rim = Hole.
This time it was a nasty root. Two months ago it was a rock on BW.
I have been trying to push the comfort envelope on a hard tail, and I have pushed it too far!
Dustin, you are a very smart guy. Think for just a minute. If you smack a metal rim against a hard object, and you have a relatively thin rubber sleeve between those two pieces, the rubber will split. Time for a tube to get you back...
The old wive's tale that you can't pinch flat tubeless is BS.
JL: Thanks. I may need it one day, but I have to admit that I flat a lot less than I ever did while running tubes. You know how big of an advocate I am of tubeless.
BV: I only run tubeless tires. On the 29er I run Stans Flow rims with the yellow tape. Was running Specialized The Captains, but after two sidewall cuts on gravel (honestly JRA), I went to Bontrager Jones AC-X and Jones XR tires (recommendation from Mike Curiac). Great tires! My slice Saturday was 100% my fault.
Two scoops of Stans in each. Have to renew the scoops about every three to four months.
Lakeview Loop is clear. Several of what got cleared were not even close to "riders".
A passel of trees were cleared. Over a dozen. Came across numerous hikers. All were very appreciative that SORBA/CSRA was involved with keeping the trails clear. One even became an impromptu swamper on an extremely nasty treetop across the trail. His labs watched and wagged their tails as we cut...
