How To Repair Tubeless MTB Flats – Fix Your Mountain Bike Tubeless Tyres
We don’t think you’ll get too many punctures if you’re using tubeless tyres. But, if you do, here’s how to fix them and get back on the road.
Tubeless tyres a tough to puncture. You’re unlikely to pinch puncture, and, if you’re using sealant, most small holes should be covered pretty quickly.
But, if you ‘burp’ air out of your tyre or get a larger cut, how can you repair them and get back on your way?
Burping air is relatively simple to fix; as long as you haven’t lost too much air, you can just make sure that the tyre is correctly seated and re-inflate.
If you get a larger cut (this is pretty rare but still worth knowing how to fix). You need to act quite quickly. This is where ‘slugs’, ‘anchovies’, call them whatever come in. Use them to plug the hole in the tyre (like Neil does in this video) and your tubeless sealant (which you are running, right?) will help to plug the gap, giving you a repair which may last as long as the lifespan of the tyre.
