Ever wondered how to make your BMX tires tubeless? Here’s a how to video showing you how it’s done…
If you ever caught a flat tire riding BMX, there’s a good chance the question of “why do I even need a tube?” has crossed your mind. The answer is obviously to keep the air from escaping through the spoke holes and around the bead of the tire. As much of a bummer getting a flat tire is, there is a trick that you can do to make your BMX tire tubeless. It just requires a bit more work than just changing out a tube, pumping it up and getting back to riding like you normally would. Here’s a video Ryan Needle and his friends put together showing you how to make your BMX tires tubeless by using a small 16″ tube and tire sealant to seal off your spoke holes and the bead of your tire to hold the air in. This isn’t super complex by any means, but you will want to use a sturdy, undamaged tire to get the best result. It’s a little more involved and can get a bit messy, but seems to work pretty well. Take a peek at the video to see just how it is done!
