Giant SLR1 Carbon wheels

Does anyone have a set?.. do they have wear indicators?

Thanks

I have one set of them with 55 mm deep rims. Or just too, now I only have one of the wheels left. I destroyed it, 100% my fault. I like them, feels nice and are durable. Haven’t thought about the wear indicator, and I’m abroad now so can’t check it.

Do they look bound for a bin?

How do they feel? My rear is really worn and has a lovely deep groove from dragging the brake :slight_smile:

I don’t feel any groove as such…… it’s just the visual that’s a bit concerning.

I definitely wouldn’t worry then!

Not where you’d expect it… my LBS found that the carbon plate has started to detach…

They come with lifetime warranty though, so I’d contact giant

I’ve never ran tubeless, but this second hand set I got are set up with tubeless tyres etc. One is holding air and one isn’t.

Is it just a case of adding some fluid to them, rolling them a few times and blow up?

Roughly how much fluid is needed per wheel?

Inspect the thread for any sharp objects and remove them. I generally use around 30ml/wheel. Good sealants are effeto mariposa and I suspect vittoria’s sealant too, Stan’s regular sealant does not really work for me

@ArHu74 thanks, I had two 2oz bottles of Stans, I put a bottle in each and so far so good. I rolled them for a min or so at various angles…… does that mean I can forget about them now?

Do I still need to carry pump?/gas?

Thanks

I would, I also carry a “Stan’s dart” which I had to use once (took a few tries to get it right ". I only ever needed it when using Stan’s never with effeto mariposa but the latter has a tendency to bubble through tan sidewalls and stain them.

A while ago I bought some vittoria air liners too. A real pain in the ass to set up but with these virtually no chance of ever having a flat again

And yes I carry a pump and cartridges

Thanks, I’ll get a dart :+1:

So am I right in thinking if something pieces the tyre it will still go flattish but when I blow up it will be repaired?

the sealant needs a bit of time and pressure to do its work but putting in too much pressure before the sealant has set could blow the hole open again. It’s a bit of trial and error.

Unfortunately not. It’s only 2 years warranty on the wheels here (it apparently differs by location)
