I picked up a new set of 29er wheels for my Cutthroat and they’re hookless. I’ve looked around for answers and everything seems to just explain what hookless is. Any help is appreciated!
If you lose pressure on a hooked rim, the tire stays in place with the hook. What happens on a hookless rim? For example, on a hooked rim I add sealant through the valve stem but often lose a bunch of pressure. How do you add or top off sealant if the tire loses pressure and comes out of contact with the sides of the hookless rim?
For difficult to mount tires (e.g Rene Herse in my experience), I’d have to install with a tube then break the bead on one side of the tire and remove the tube. An Airshot canister would then be needed. Any tips for hard to mount tires on hookless? Should I get a small compressor? Is a CO2 trail side enough to inflate usually?
