So having upgraded my wheels (to some Bontrager Aeolus pro 37) , I’m currently debating whether or not to go tubeless (again), and if so, to what tyre?
I’ll start by saying my default position is Conti GP5000 clinchers (with tubes).
I have run tubeless before and have enjoyed them, but one catastrophic flat where I had to call in the cavalry has made me wary, especially as (Covid permitting) I’ll be doing a few sportives next year (including the Tour of Flanders, not that i can sit that happening atm).
What are people’s views on TLE vs tubed, and what are people running for good all-round performance?
The tyres will be going on a Madone SLR, which is going to be my ‘good’ bike, i.e. not used in the depths of winter (unless it’s an unusually dry and warm day) nor in awful weather.
