    Giant tubeless system experiences

    Yah, I'll probably end up going down that path, but I would like to at least try and get to the point where I can be self sufficient if Im away from home. I saw your experiences with tape in the other thread that you linked to, so will try to avoid undersized tape. Reading around it seems to...

    Hi Folks, I picked up a Giant Explore E last weekend and have done a couple of days commuting to work (about 16km each way). Loved the reviews in the main site and they played a large part in my journey to making my final choice. Im loving the assistance on the hills and into the wind...
