I have some of that tape.
Seems to be largely advocated by "tobinhatesyou".
Pretty thin and not as stiff as tape that is designed for the purpose it seemed to me.
Not impressed on my wheels and ordered some from the wheel manufacturer.
Possibly my fumble fingered application had something to do with it, but the purpose designed stuff went on ok.

These are handy for tubeless tyre use. Inevitably the valve core seems to clog over time.
Whip it out and replace it solves that.

I just received some valve cores as suggested in this thread, but it seems my front tyre has finally got the message and is holding 80psi. I have only had one ride all year though due to some sutures in my quad. Hoping to get out tomorrow and see how the tubeless tyres hold up.

So after a year or so of avoiding the GP5000TR I just realised the one I was forced to buy (irretrievable puncture on the road, only tyre in stock in the bike shop) has 998km on it and barely looks worn.

Given I've been getting 800km or so out of my Vittoria Corsa NEXT TLR ($75) it's time to do the sums and consider whether it's worth spending the extra on the $109 GP5000TRs. And it probably is - that would have been at 960km or so.

It'll be interesting to see how much longer this one lasts. And I've been even more particularly brutal on it than normal - it's seen a fair few 700W+ vertical KOMs.

Just checked those GP5000s closely. 1100km and the wear markers are all still intact.

I've literally never seen them last more than a few hundred kilometres. Definitely seems worth the extra investment no matter how much it hurts paying $109 for tyres!

I have over 9000km on my GP5000TL, rear tyre is squared off but the wear markers are intact. I don't put out anywhere the watts you do, and do a lot of flat bike path KMs.

It'll be interesting to see how long they last. Given I've never tried anything other than the Vittoria NEXT TLR tubeless on the road I suspect they weren't the right choice for longevity. Running 60PSI I'm not getting anything like the 'skipping' sensation I'd get on tubed at 80PSI which should be a lot better for the tyres.

I am not a heavy tyre consumer, normally get around up to 6000 km out of my tyres.
The Vittoria NEXT TLR rode very comfy in 28 mm. The payback for that was the very soft sidewalls attracted a few punctures.
Each did seal up though so no problem there.
But the tread material started to breakup around 4000 km, causing me to change out.

Running some 28 mm Pirelli Cinturato Velo's now, will see how they go.
They do blow up to a big diameter on the Giant SLR wheels though. Not much seat tube clearance on my TCR!
Ride is firmer as well.

I have very tight clearances on an older disc frame but can allegedly run 28mm. I tried in once with a NEXT TLR and made it all of 20km before blowing out a sidewall - I suspect a rock was caught between the frame and tyre. Annoyingly the only puncture I've had in 4000km on NEXT TLR was in the same spot the day before on a 25mm tyre so no idea what happened there.

That's the problem with tyres. They may be excellent but if you hit the wrong rock too early in their lifespan you'll never buy them again.

Finally swapped out that rear 5000TR - 1515km which is a new record for me.

It didn't particularly need it, either. What I thought was a patch of tread missing was just a stone mark. Wear markers were completely gone though, and the sealant on the front needed to be changed anyway so I thought I'd put a new pair with the Tour de Brisbane in a few weeks.

Put new 5000TRs on there - $109 each. They were so much easier to fit than the Vittoria Corsa TLR NEXT as well, instantly on and instantly beaded. Given I got an extra 600km compared to the Vittoria it's pretty much a no brainer. So Continental are expensive but you seem to get what you pay for.

The front went yesterday in the wet, about 5,500 K's, first set up back in early September with Silca Ultimate and replenished a couple of times after. The carbon strands were in two lumps, no obvious reason as to why it had clumped together. When the rear tufo did that, it was attached to a label on the inside.

I ended up putting a latex tube in on the side of the road and have set the front up tubed for now, until I have a better idea of how to make it last. This might end up being just for long events. Then again, a mate somewhat binned his time trial bike on the weekend when the front butyl punctured and deflated during a corner. And I've had a similar incident but kept the bike upright. Sealant is nice... when it works.
I ride, therefore I am. But don't ride into harm's way.

I’m officially a convert. I’m almost at the 3 month mark and need to top up the sealant soon. I’ve done around 1k km on some 32mm Gravelkings and despite some people saying they are puncture magnets, I haven’t had one yet touch wood.

I'm not aligned with this shop in anyway but have a look at Redcliffe Cycles for tyres also, although I don't see any GP5000's in the infintry but some of the prices for the Dunlop and other tyres looks good. :idea: Stuff that I got from 99 last weekend, I could have saved $40 on if I had of seen the shop adds. :evil:

I did know the family really well in my younger years and Marks father started the business over 40yrs ago.

No Dunlop tyres at all on here; https://www.bicyclerollingresistance.co ... ke-reviews

Have a 30mm Schwalbe pro one addix on my rear WR50 hookless at the moment.
Going well.
A bit stupid but w t h, on seating on the hookless rim, I pumped it to 120psi and let it sit for a while. No probs :shock:
Should be fine at the 60psi I run it at.
Measured up well. 32 mm wide on the 32 mm ext width rim (25 int) :)
