My first venture into tubeless was going so well - until last night.
Riding on some nasty, but not extreme, gravel I managed to split the tyre right in the centre of the tread by about 1/4 inch. I managed to get the tyre to seal at first, by rolling the split to the bottom and letting the sealant do it's thing (I'm using Stans No Tubes), but once I started moving it opened up again. By this time most of the sealant had come out and I had to resort to fitting a tube to get me home.I did have a small bottle of sealant with me but the tube option seemed to be the way to go as it was getting late.
So my question is: How (or is it possible) to repair my tyre with the split?
Secondly, I'm using Rocket Rons Evo Pacestar tyres. I know these are lightweight but should I expect this sort of thing to happen a lot? The gravel was rough but I wouldn't have expected it to split the tyre like it did.
