Schwalbe Procore?

So last year I switched to tubeless. After some teething issues life is good. But occasionally on super hard sharp hits my rear rim clanks right through. If I run high enough pressure to stop this ride quality suffers the rest of the time.

So it got me thinking about other options. Maybe I should run a tube in the back and tubeless up front. But I still crushed/pinched plenty of tubes out back unless I run them super hard.

A possible solution could be to run tubeless up front and Procore in the back - that way I can get the nice pliable ride but have some rim protection. Thoughts?

Anyone want to split a 29" Procore kit?

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

That combo sounds super smart. I look forward to your report :)

Does Procore add a bunch of weight?

That sounds about right. A tube weighs around 200g but even with the extra meat of a TR-ready tire and sealant tubeless is still lighter and rides better.

are the kits available yet? lots of delays so far…

i've migrated toward running essentially light DH tires which is depressing but effective. i suspect i'd just start getting punctures again with lighter tires, and the added weight of a procore tube would make it a wash compared to a thicker tire alone. would like to try it though.

Might be a little out of left field, but have you checked your front/rear weight distribution? Sounds like you've got most of your weight over the back, which could be causing you to need much more pressure in the back.

Being cheap is OK. Being a clueless sanctimonious condescending douchebag is just Vlad's MO.

maybe try a different rim. Some rims are just bad at destroying tires and tubes, my buddy is having the same problem with sun inferno 31 and he's only 140 pounds.

that system (tubliss ) works great on my Moto. ive dropped my rear tire pressure to as low as 5.5 lbs. I think it would work great on a mtb application.

I was somewhat curious until I saw it needs 23mm internal rim width. I think my Spank Oozy's are narrower than that. Will have to investigate.

Wrong. Always.

I wonder if it would be possible to drill a second hole in a rim for either a 650 or 700 tubular (depending on your wheel size) install your tire and sealant then inflate the tubular. You would of course need to seal the tubular valve to the rim. Tubular valves don't usually have threaded stems though but I'll bet that's how they tested this concept.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

^ Absolutely is possible and has been done. I had the same thought and then stumbled on it on pinkbike.

Edit: here it is, they use a tube still but the principle is the same. Would just need an air passage on your tubeless valve stem to allow for air to pass around the tubular OR drill thru the tubular and clamp like they did:
