C02 and Tubeless
In the Secret Squirrel club, we are currently debating whether the use of C02 cartridges has a chemical reaction with Stan’s jizz thereby preventing effective sealing of holes. Thorns seem to be ok but when a bigger cut appears (within the quoted parameters) it seems not to work.
Two of us use hand pumps while another of our number uses cartridges to inflate tyres after trail side blow outs. He seems to be the only one who has real issues and more often than not, has to resort to a tube.
I always carry a 100ml bottle of jizz along with me so it is seldom a case of the goo having dried up or him having too little in his tyre.
Is this a common occurrence or is it just him? Evidence seems to suggest C02 is the culprit but might there be some other reason lurking?Posted 3 years agoThe Wrong TrousersSubscriber
Yes, I emailed Stans the other day.Posted 3 years ago
They replied and said that CO2 is for emergencies only. It will get you home but will cause the fluid to dry out which then needs refreshing.
Just a case of injecting more jizz, no need to clean out the dry stuff unless you can really be bothered.brassneckSubscriber
I’ve used co2 to inflate a ghetto tubeless set up with Stan’s. It worked and I did not die.
It works, but the sealant goes off and balls up quicker. So you might be less thorn protected than you’d expect.Posted 3 years ago
I have proven this to my own satisfaction, Stans comment(above) backs this up so I’d say steer clear.
