Dunlop = English = mamachari.I now have access to an air compressor at work so I was thinking I'd buy an adapter to be able to pump up tires with it. I have also been toying with the idea of going tubeless, and I understand a compressor makes seating tubeless tires a bit easier. The problem is that Amazon is so flooded with cheap products and fake reviews now that it's hard to know if I'm buying something that will last or not. There are about a zillion products like this that look like what I want but they all seem to have an alarming number of 1 star reviews saying the product was faulty out of the box. Does anyone have any recommendations for this kind of thing? I'm happy to not give my money to Amazon as well if I can get it elsewhere. Need to have a pressure guage and be able to pump up presta valves and whatever the valves mamacharis use as well (is that schraeder?).
I am not sure how widespread that is anymore, though. On the road side tubeless is still not universally adopted whereas on the mountain bike side, I think having tubes is quite uncommon these days. The model of my (mountain bike) rims literally has NoTubes in it, so I reckon that might have something to do with it, too.Tyre rim fit is luck of the draw.
Yes, but it is an adapter you have to remind yourself to carry. Plus, Presta valves are much more annoying: they allow for less air flow/give more resistance to airflow, it is very easy to accidentally release air when putting on your pump and they require you to screw down the valve manually. If it weren‘t for tubeless, I don’t see any advantages.Tyre rim fit is luck of the draw. As for presta those schrader-presta adaptors are cheap.
Presta valves make do with smaller valve holes in the rim. Admittedly more of an issue with a narrow rim for 25mm road tires than for something wider.If it weren‘t for tubeless, I don’t see any advantages.
