    Anybody ever used the TUBliss tubeless tyre system ? They seem to have come down in price .. now about 85 quid on ebay so that's cheaper than a mousse and rimlock. From the website it looks a better solution than heavy duty tubes, mousses or tyreballs to me ... but has anybody any real experience of TUbliss ?? scratch

    I looked into getting them once, Advantages are that they last a long time unlike mousses and are lighter. disadvantages, If you tear the tyre its still gonna go down and spoil your days competing maybe.If your trail riding though it holds tyre on so you can still ride like a run flat car tyre does

    What do you think of the T-lock then phil990 ? Would you recommend them above HD innertubes , mousses or other?

    It took a bit of concentration on the first install. Much simplar than the other make. Which in my mind makes them more reliable...

    Then I was fiddling with them and checking tyre pressures all the time.

    I have had them a couple of years and now I just leave them untouched for months at a time.

    Remember the tyre can never come of the rim even if the tyre is F.B.A.P.D!

    When you change tyres you need to use the supplied tyre sealant like you would tyre soap all around the rim.

    Saved me a fortune. Can run fucked tyres at 5 PSI. extends there life by ages...

    Its also very quick and easy to do the change as well. I have had better luck with this system than people I know with TUBliss...

    That sounds encouraging. I've got mousses front and rear in my aprilia at the moment but when they need replacing I may give the T-lock a go. Should be ok for roadwork too whereas Mousses aren't recommended for that.
    Do you buy them direct from Trelleborg?
