Crash Course: How To Safely Fall Off A Motorcycle
Does that mean that almost all cruiser bikes with spoked wheels are tubed? If that’s true, that’s a lot of tubed tires; I thought they were much less common than that.
From what I have heard, tubed tires are more dangerous because if e.g. a nail goes into a tubed tire, it’s much more likely to cause violent decompression and you may suddenly have a flat going at 45-50mph or more and that’s why cars stopped using them. With a tubeless tire, a nail is much more likely to just cause a slow leak.
As an aside, is there any way on this forum to get email notifications of new posts?
I’m still kind of a beginner, been riding one year, about 4k miles…
My question is re: the tires on the TU250x — are they tubed? I’ve heard that spoked wheels mean tubed tires, which are more prone to blowouts (as opposed to slow deflation). Does anyone know what type of tires are on the TU?
