Most tyres have a line running the full way around the tyre just above the bead, you can check that the gap from the rim to the line is even all the way around to give confidence that its seated correctly... I've had issues on my MTB where the tyres didn't seat fully in one area.
I've been caught on that one before, so it's the first thing I check!

Yep. Completely even all the way around. I can only assume the fit is just so linear and tight that there isn't any drama when you bead them up for the first time. Haven't leaked a bit either.

Still it wasn't as reassuring as the loud 'pop'!

Do not recommend the Goodyear Eagle F1 for spirited riding. Rolling resistance is about 6W more than the GP5000TRs I've been riding and you do feel it.

Grip and air retention is excellent and they are very supple in comparison though. Probably shouldn't have put them on before the 130km charity ride on Sunday.

Third puncture in 12,000km of road tubeless today.

Simply hit too big a pothole. As in diabolically big - 30cm across and hidden in the shadow and I was doing 45km/hr or so. Front Goodyear pretty much exploded, no sealing that one.

Wasn't really enjoying their ridiculous rolling resistance anyway so I'll put a GP5000 back on.

Good strong wheel if so.

Wheel is absolutely fine.

Very impressed by that Light Bicycle 45mm/DT350 combo. They’ve had a tough life, 23,000km in and still going strong.

New GP5000TR on today. Straight on, popped into place and 6W faster. Not sure I’ll bother with any other road tyre now!

Spotted this on another forum. I have a storage tank compressor that will run a spray gun so haven't needed this but it sounds handy. The presenter loves it anyway.

Never seen a high pressure tyre sit flat on a rim like that or is that how these tubless things sit first up? :?

No not really. That is an expensive handmade goer that is apparently hard to seat. It is a challenge tyre. I have used a challenge getaway pro in a 40 that did that. Have another still sitting in the drawer.
The tyre seated with a track pump using the tape which is impressive.

Whilst I'm happy so far with my Continental GP Urban 35c tyres (actually 33mm) for the commuter, these tyres may be REALLY interesting

BRR will have the test upcoming soon - I'll post a link.

Price in Germany is Euro 46 each (about A$75/tyre without shipping), so much better value that $130 ea here
