    tubeless tire

    Can this apply to wheelchair tire?
    Life is meaningles, though you create the purpose.

    (edit: bad info. see post #4 instead) Yes, BUT . . . You'd need tubeless wheels, tires, rim tape, and valve stem. These items are special; their size availability is currently very limited and available only with bicycle hubs. So you'd need to have a wheelset custom made with wheelchair hubs.

    Here's a bicycle related pros/cons review of the tubeless technology. An excerpt:

    The review I posted above is for road tires. Apparently more options exist for MTB (Mountain Bike Tires aka 26" bicycle tires) which are equivalent to wheelchair 25" (559).

    Here's a MTB related review. An excerpt:

    While a lot of people here have helped me a lot, no one has gone further than Chas. He consistently puts out well researched information and is one of the best experts we have here.

    Really. There is no reason to get rid of anyone, except the clowns keep wrecking the site. People I have come across are nice and there are tons of people looking and finding help here. Chas is not ignorant or lack of knowledge. Nobody here, knows everything.
