WTB Horizon 47mm "road plus" tyres sound like they'll fit the bill. Not sure what else is out there in that size though.
Teravail Rampant is the modern version of the Horixon (better sidewall, no weeping etc.)
They'd want to be better at almost double the price.
The little white dots of sealant weeping from the sidewall when you inflate with fresh sealant.
Nowadays modern tyres don’t do that.
TBF Teravail is the new kids in the block hence the high price.
Plus, just replace the valve.
The Horizons I have don't weep anything... except air from the valve.
Didn't mean to cause a rift, but debate is good.
Still not in the world of tubeless yet, but I will be.
No rift here. I'm interested in the info too but clearly peeps are having different dramas with different tyres.
Yup, I guess the older Horizon are prone to weeping (like the other WTB stuff).
Maybe they've improved their TL liner? I'm late to this TL game and these tyres have been around at least 4 years.
Quick question, anyone have success fixing a sidewall puncture on WTB Horizons setup tubeless? Got a cut yesterday that didn't seal with sealant so scratching my head on getting it fixed.
Patch? Boot? Stitch?
I've got some Schwalbe Big Ben's 650x2.0 that might suit you well. Basically new. £15 is all I ask :)
Teravail is overpriced because it's a QBP brand
Provided it's not too close to the bead you should be able to patch it with a small radial car tyre patch. Used this technique loads to good effect...
GB 26" 50mm guards + 650b 42mm tyres, will it go? Feel like 60mm is too big
I use GB 650x50 with 42c tires. It’s tight but I made it to work without even slight rubbing.
I was wondering about the 26" ones as they're possibly a bit cheaper and seems some people have had success with the 650b×47mm and 26"×60mm guard combo
Selling a set of 650b rims I’ve just bought-
Suitable for rim brakes
Brand new, £30 for the pair.
I have 2x sets of 650B tyres I would like to sell.
Bought them but they are too wide for my needs. (27.5 x 1.95)
Technically brand new unused but they've been sitting in garden for about 2 weeks now.
One set is Vee Rubber SPEEDSTER 27.5x1.95 and made by VeeTireCo. The official sizing is 50-584.
One set is Kenda tanwall KENDA Tyre K841A - 002, size 27.5 x 1.95.
£25 for both sets and happy to meet centrally too
They are just too wide to put on the "vintage" french bikes I deal with unfortunately.
Are there any decent knobbly 650b tyres that are under 45c? I'm getting close to giving up on finding a fork that can take the 2 inch tyre I have
Order one of these and let me know if you die in a fire ball
