Just wondering if anyone out there has tried this particular rim+tyre bead combination. I had a hell of an experience with GP 5000 TLs on other bike (Mavic Kysirum Elite rims) which turned out to be so tight I couldn't fit them by the roadside in the event of a puncture. Looking around online, I've since discovered this combination of rim+(tubeless)tyre-bead is renowned as being particularly tough to fit.
I'm tempted to try these same tyres on my other bike because they performed so well while actually riding. I'll go for the non-tubeless version in the hope the bead will be a little easier to stretch over the rim.
Will it be possible to fit and repair this rim+tyre-bead combo without losing a few hours and the skin on my knuckles each time I puncture? The intended combo is Mavic Allroad Elite UST Disk + Conti GP 5000 folding 700 x 30C.
Sadly I no longer have my old GP5000 TL tyres so I can't just try it out without purchasing a new set.
Any experience much appreciated. Cheers,
