Tubeless Tire Introduction

Tubeless Bike Tires
These are gaining in popularity. The pros: For better traction without pinch flats and the ride tends to be smoother.
The cons? The installation process is a little more complicated, as is fixing a tubeless flat. You can carry a tube on your rides, though, to simplify fixing a flat on the trail or on the road.
To make the switch to a tubeless setup you'll probably want to invest in tubeless-ready tires and rims. You can also buy conversion kits for standard tires and rims.
