Rear tyre almost rolling off rim.

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I'm having problems with rear tyres coming close to rolling off the rim on my 27.5 Anthem.
I'm running Stans Arch EX rims, and used to run a snakeskin Racing Ralph 2.25, but due to this problem I've recently changed to an Ardent EXO TR 2.25 on the rear.
During high grip hard cornering off the brakes, the tyre rolls to the point where it is about to burp, but doesn't burp. All grip is lost for a second or so.
It happens most rides, tyre pressure is always between 30 to 35psi, running tubeless with stans sealant.

Any ideas?
More pressure?
Wider rim?

Cheers.

Newbie!

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi all
After a lengthy hiatus from fitness and exercising, I have decided to get my unfit self back on the bike. I used to ride everyday but on a flat bar Merida road bike. I have decided to step into the world of MTB.
As a first purchase I'd like to get something that I can use to get to work (approx. 9km ride) but still be able to get out on the dirt on weekends. After some initial research, I'm guessing a 29er would be the way to roll?
Some background info. I'm 6'3, and 100kg plus.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. No matter how small or seemingly irrelevant Smiling

Cheers Smiling

Tapered steerer tube's

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I'm in the market to buy some new/secondhand forks after mine came up worse for wear after last week's off.

Bike involved is a 2014 Scott Scale

I've confused myself so my question is..Are 1.5” tapered the same as 1.25"-1.5" tapered steerer tubes or as I suspect are they different.

Cheers
Buster

Bike Security...London Style

Just returned from a trip to London and saw this in Kentish Town.

If you can't saw through the bike lock...try cutting the bike in half. Makes sense.

I've broken the inner plate on a Shimano SLX M675 10 Spd Shadow + GS (Medium cage) derailleur. Anybody know where I could get a spare? I can't seem to find one anywhere this side of the equator!

Tubeless Burping

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I've got my shiny new Nobby Nics and thought I may lose my tubeless cherry by converting soon. However, after much forum reading, burping seems to be a problem for heavier blokes like myself (circa 90kg inc gear) when running anything below 30PSI.

My concern is, by having higher pressures to avoid burping does this not negate the benefits of running tubeless by benefiting from lower pressures?

As usual your combined wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

PS. I'm running Mavic EX729 (26").

Nobby Nic Trailstar and Pacestar

OK. Just rode the KC circuit this morning and it's time to hang up my very worn tires - it was like riding on ice (frozen water not Meth).

I'm about to buy some Nobby Nics and just wanted to know which compound to use on the front and back.

Cheers.

PS. Saw an awful lot of blokes clad head to toe in lycra this morning on the trails....sinister.
