Cycle Maintenance 101 - Tubed VS Tubeless

To go tubed or tubeless? That is the question…

There are many pros to both, so let's break it down should we -

Pros of tubeless:

  • Fewer punctures and flats
  • Better ride
  • Lighter bike
  • Better traction
  • Better ride quality
  • Faster riding

Pros of tubed:

  • Cheap
  • Easy to buy
  • Faster and easier to set up
  • Easy to patch up
  • All tires and rims are designed for tubes
  • Better for road cycling

Now that we’ve covered the bases of the differences of the two, its now very much up to you whether you go tubed or tubeless.
