I have a pair of Snoqualmie Pass tires on my road bike, set up tubeless. I absolutely love them, but I got a small cut on the sidewall of the rear tire. The tires still have a lot of life in them, and, considering that they are not so cheap to replace, I decided to try repairing the cut.
[Update 4 months down the road – May 2021] The repair is holding just like the day I made it.
I urgently needed a new rear wheel for my winter bike, and ended up buying an Alex Rims SX-44, the 29″ variant. This is clearly a budget disc brake wheel priced fairly low, but from the description it seemed like a no-nonsense wheel with decent components. My goal was to set this wheel up tubeless with Schwalbe Marathon studded winter tire (HS 396). Below are some facts and thoughts about this wheel.
