Converting your mountain bike wheels to tubeless can save you hassle in the long run, but does require a bit of effort initially.
In part two of our mountain bike maintenance series, in association with Unior Tools, mountain bike senior tech editor Rob Weaver takes you through the conversion process. Follow these seven steps and you should end up with tyres that are perfectly sealed and ready to ride.
Whether you’re in the comfort of a workshop or exposed out on the trails, having the right skills and tools to fix and maintain your bike are an essential part of any mountain biker’s armoury.
Our new 10-part series with Unior Tools aims to instil the knowledge that’ll mean you won’t be caught short when a problem arises. From workshop tips such as fitting a hydraulic brake set or fixing a broken chain to trail tips like dealing with a broken spoke or replacing a gear cable, the series – online every Monday for the next couple of months – will cover skills both basic and expert.
