Oops, it's me again...
Has anyone had farting problems, and how did you stop it?
I seem to have found the Achilles Heel of tubeless tyres, unless I'm doing something wrong?
Towards the end of my daily ride there is a sweet little singletrack descent winding down through the woods to the car park. The ride varies but this is a regular finish . At the top, there is a small dropooff of about 2 foot, easy peasy but it has a badly cambered landing. Half the time my rear tyre farts on landing, and depending on how big a chuff it is, can make the bike decidedly wobbly or even unrideable. It's a pain in the bum to have to walk the last 1/2 mile to the car, and even if I did carry a pump, the "flow" would have gone.
What can I do to stop the farts?
Bigger/different tyre? They're Bonty MudX 1.8 tubeless ready at the mo, and they're brilliant!
Higher/lower pressure? I run 36psi
More juice? There's a measure and a half of Stans in each tyre, about 3 months old.
Wheels are DT Swisscheese 4.2D
Thanks for any tips...
