Had a puncture today and am thinking of fitting a tube to my rear varadero tubeless wheel.
Some people say its ok others say its not I have repaired the tyre with an internal patch but am not confident in it. And I dont like those bung repairs on bikes but have no doubts they work.
I have used tubes in tubeless rims before but for some reason as I get older I am swaying towards buying a new tyre.
Anyone else running there tubeless wheel with tubes in?
Do you get em repaired or just by new?

Am I a wingeing old git who's hairline is showing signs of beginning the irreversible receding that comes to most blokes:confused:

The thing with tubes in tubeless wheels is that the tubeless tyre can move around on the rim just a bit... So if you fit a tube it can rip out the valve.

So if you do you should keep a close eye on the valve, as long as it sticks straight out of the rim you should be okay, if it starts to get an angle you're in trouble.
