Why or why wouldn't you go tubeless on a 20" BMX or DJ bike?
Got a lot of pinch flats recently and was look for a better solution than having to buy a tube every day/
I was considering doing the gorilla tape method on my 20" single wall BMX... is this a bad idea?
From my research, I've found:
Sidewall takes a beating in BMX / DJ causing the tires to burp (more dangerous, could cause crash)
Sometimes you want higher tire pressure (BMX street riding) and tubeless is not good for high pressures
Lighter (by a little)
Easier flat maintenance
Better against thorns than a tube
Is able to run lower tire pressure for more grip
Cheaper in the long run (tubes are ~$10 a pop)
I mostly dirt jump with my BMX, so I see more pros than cons. Any experience or thoughts?
