Tubeless Misadventures – Day 5

Posted: December 29th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: bicycles | No Comments »

Day 4 involved noting that the tires were losing psi but at varying rates. My process has been to inflate to 120psi and to shake shake shake to get sealant where it needs to be. Day 5 is around the same. I am planning on popping the bead and pouring a larger quantity of sealant in. I am thinking of restarting with a new taping for each wheel.

I note that the wheels and tires are sold as not needing sealant at all. Given my experience so far, it is unimaginable to me.

I also want to note how ugly the wheel graphics are on the bike. Off the bike I don’t think they are terrible. Pics to come.
