i wish i could blame that on running a tube type tire on a tubeless rim.
why didn't anyone get pics when you fell over earlier that day?

rolled around I believe, and you don't want to show for the adv spring rally. Just think what you'll miss. Maybe it'll be Redbud's turn.

"Attack"? Really? You basically titled your query "tire for black and yellow gs" and no one responded for 12 hours. I offered a friendly tip on how to elicit a better response from this friendly group of folks who love to give advice. I also shared my experience with tube type tires. Then your thread sat unanswered for another 48 hours until you bumped it with a mighty and later with a claim that I attacked you.

Whatever. I sincerely apologize to everyone on this list who felt attacked by my post.

Hmmm, white Acerbis fenders, unpainted nylon Acerbis tank, no side covers and a white nacelle. It might as well be a Can Am Spyder.

I guess that's no help at all.

You are clearly unqualified.

please no attacks

I have a black bike and a white bike and both have different tires and use different oil so color does have a lot to do with it......but then both use tube tires so maybe not.

When I had my red/white PD and asked this question, the answer I received seemed so wise I actually took it. Using tubes is good; trying to reseat a broken bead on a tubeless tire with a 12VDC compressor is bad. But then, I had a tank cover on the bike..

I'm guessing you bought Metzler Saharas.

BTW, I didn't even look at this thread because the title was so specific and I've never owned a Bummblebee..............not that what I have said makes any difference.
