Anyone used CushCore? There's been some foam options floating around, but I've heard that this stuff stays put a lot better and also improves stability.

Never heard of it but it looks pretty cool. I know some people (Ali c) were just using 1.5" - 2" foam core and cutting it to shape and putting inside tubeless systems. I bought tubeless valves etc many months ago but never put it on my hex or my adventure bike... let us know how it goes if you go for it

Cushcore is only available in 27.5 and 29... So we won't see it on a trials bike unless they release a 26" version or if you make a custom 27.5" trials

Or if you have superglue...



I plan to superglue one together. I've had good luck with foams... Maybe some tape or... Ideas?

Not sure how the rebound will be for this. And any weight penalties?

Jun 21, 2017

Perhaps rebound could be better since you could dial the pressure specifically for rebound without worrying about flats?

Weight is around 200g, but you could go slightly lighter in the tire.


Rebound is slower. Yeah, more tunabiliry! Although, you'd have to run tubeless unless you ran a tube over the top. Outside of a non-drilled rim, the Hashtagg rims have a nice bead seat... If you're going with a comp bike.

  • Wondering if anyone has researched and or successfully converted some sort of non trials mtb 26" frame to a streety trials bike. Something with a long-ish top tube, 0drop bb or so, short stays, low front end like 60-80mm fork and rear disc.
  • I purchased a heatsink tensioner for my Hex, replacing the Trialtech two wheeled tensioner I have been using for years. I now have more chain than I would like hanging down. I am a half link away from being able to shorten any further and would like to use a half link. This is where it gets confusing, I have never done this before and have read on every chain description on Tartybikes that the split link that comes with every chain sold is not recommended for trials use. There are no alternatives given. I have read that people just push a link pin out enough to remove the required links and push the partially removed pin back in. This makes me uncomfortable. If I was to use a half link I would have to do this twice or, I would have to use two split links which is not recommended for trials use by Tartybikes to put the chain together. Both options sound sketchy to me. Can someone with experiential knowledge and experience please explain how I can use a half link without compromising the chains integrity so I won't worry about my chain snapping on every drop?! Split link image provided for those who may not know what it is.
  • I have the clean t13 v2 brake lever with echo calipers. I can't get the pistons to retract consistently. I've bled them several times, lubed and exercised the pistons but still can't get them to work right. Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks for the help!
