Tubeless Misadventures – Day 3

Posted: December 27th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: bicycles | No Comments »

The rear wheel had lost all of its air over night. That was the wheel with the factory installed tape. No problems with my front wheel that had a tube installed to “cure” the replacement Stan’s tape. After work I pulled the tube out and reseated the tire. With three days of practice I was starting to get better at it.  I removed the cores and carefully poured Stan’s sealant into the front and rear tires. After sealanting, I reinflated and did the Stan’s “shake” – trying to get the sealant distributed throughout the inside of the tire. After an hour or so the front has lost 20 psi, so I let the air out and poured in more sealant and did some more shaking.

Now I wait.
