So these bloody deflector blocks just keep splitting on me! It's getting to be that I have to replace them anytime a change the tyre.
This rear one has done about 15 hours I reckon.
Common to have wear on the inner bladder but I've started using silicone grease to lube it and it's helping I think. Plus I have small splits in two of my four red liners (sealed with super glue).
Bit annoying as I wouldn't ever change them but I don't think anyone else really gets this issue?
I run soft tyres (trials/Maxxis Trialmaxx) at 4-6 psi, I'm a bit of a lump, bit still, the only way I can see that happening is that the rim lock is being pushed towards the rim. Always torque it to 15nm after inflating the inner bladder...
So apart from going on a diet... What can be done?? Is it just the soft tyres at low pressure? I do smack the rear into logs and ledges and stuff but still..
