Question
Dear Howard

Can we have tubeless tyres in Bicycles?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
You can, but they aren't practical for casual or recreational bicycling. Some racers use tires that are glued directly to the rim, called tubulars or sew-ups. They are difficult to put on, remove, and repair, and you need special rims for them. You can also get solid rubber tires, but they are heavy, give an uncomfortable ride, and not many places sell them.
