    T lock/ Tubliss

    Anybody know if there is any difference between these two and are the T Lock any good.
    Run Bib mousses at the moment but due to tyre change may look at these.
    Ps I will give this half a page before the abuse starts Snigger

    Im actually wanting to know as there is ground in the fact that mousses last about 3 tyres tubliss last a lot longer.
    So will look at it as an option.




    Ps Just don't tell anybody

    On the slim change your serious heres the downlow.

    They both work off the same principle. Complete rim lock with a high pressure inner bladder to create a tubeless low pressure chamber with the tyre.

    Difference includes but not limited to, t-lock has a single valve, inflate the inner bladder, then you have to insert the supplied needle to inflate the tyre chamber. Tubliss has two separate valves so you don't need the needle to inflate the chamber.

    This info was correct when I chose Tubliss over t-lock as it seemed simpler to me, and spare parts are freely available.

    Phill990 runs T-lock and should be able to give you info on them.

    Really miss the grip on mine, but getting used to mousses now, which has totally changed how I ride compared to Tubliss, I'm still getting through everything I did before, but I do have to attack it harder. I also note if I make a mistake on mouses I hit the floor, same mistakes on Tubliss I could save them alot easier.

    Gotta say tho, with my recent punctures (a fuckton of them), I'm appreciating not having to care about punctures a hell of a lot more with the mousses in than the additional grip I gained, I'd still use tubliss tho if i had extremely low chances of punctures.

    Julian was saying the Dunlop mousses last a good while (lot more than 3 tyres I believe), worth a try over the Michelins. I'm really liking the Dunlops now I'm getting used to them.

    Still like my mousses and they will do one more tyre so may leave it till you've really tested yours against tubliss
    Like the two valve idea better than the one

    Would have said you could have borrowed my tubliss to test, but I stripped the fancy rimlocks off them to use with my mousses.

    Thanks Pete.
    Odd how two different mousse makes can act so different.
    Just going to change the Mitas double green for a slightly harder single green so I will see how it is with that.
