Easily top up tubeless bicycle tires with sealant through the valve using these 3D printed funnels. No more spills or blocked syringes! I provide funnels for both Schrader and Presta valves.
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.
Last winter I switched to using studded Schwalbe Marathon (HS 396) tires for winter commuting, and I have been wondering whether I can set them up tubeless. My reasoning is that I really don’t want to deal with a puncture in the winter. For one, road side repair is pretty much out of the question because my fingers would freeze off and the patch would probably not adhere in sub-freezing temperature. Considering that I usually dress fairly lightly when I cycle in the winter, the prospect of pushing my bike home is not very appealing.
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.
I took a stab at a tubeless set-up for my Krampus wheels. Here is what I used:
- Surly Rabbit Hole rims
- WTB Ranger 3.0″ tires (fast casing)
- Surly woven nylon rim strip
- Gorilla tape
- Stan’s Schrader valves
- Stan’s Race sealant
- Park Tool VC-1 valve core removal tool
- Sprayer bottle with soapy water
- A 3 gallon air compressor
