    Any way apparently tubliss is really good. it's very expensive, you have to run a good quality tube filled with slime on a good rim and you still get a puncture.have to get me some of those [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    The clue may be in the numbers on the moosse put there by the manufacturers, that match up with the numbers on the tyres, also put there by the manufacturers. Unless someone knows something that michelin dont!!!!

    Your talking near £150 for moose and quality new tyre [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] without all the other running costs of the bike...

    Stephen, stephen, stephen. Here are the fruits of my wisdom......

    I went over to mousses when running that favourite of yours the Mitas Co2. The Mich mousse was like a prick in a shirt sleeve in it even though it was the same size. Now run AC10's which the mousse fits nice. So it can be a bit of a lottery, but as stated get the same size as the tyre, though I have been told that top riders like to run undersize mousses for extra footprint/grip. But then they ain't paying for rims and wheels?
    So unless you sweating your bollocks off getting it in its a bit too loose.....................

    nothing worse than a loose moose

    Get the same manufacturer for thr tyre and mousse. There are differences in sizes.
