Default 2007 TXT Pro 250 Rear Rim

Just had a call from the bike shop when fitting my new tyres to say that the squeaky noise from the bike is the rear rim rotting from the inside out....

Any recommendations for a fix apart from new / second hand rim?

Oil it?


That should stop the squeaking and cure the rotting alloy beneath the tubeless mastic.

Actually a conventional rim with tubliss system would do in a pinch.

It's pretty rotten and cracked badly.... it's in a bad way.
