- Conti Baron 2.3 – Tubeless with Stan's?
I am ‘the mate’ Toons refers to. Having issues with the sidewalls leaking. Got the front to seal and its holding air, the rear has been an ongoing issue and tonight have changed to another Baron to see if it was simply a bad tyre, it aint going well…. Sealent spraying out of the sidewalls….. 🙁

i burped my rq rear today off a drop at herts. the damn thing wont sit straight and looks like a bad buckle
a mate did that to a ust RQ on an off camber landing (small jump). me and another lad have had issues with the RQs wearing on the bead area in 1 or 2 months and then the exposed threads deforming / streching to put the tyre out of shape. Don’t know if it’s a bad batch or just fragile tyres 🙁Posted 6 years agoMTB RobMember
Yes I have had trouble with some Cinti’s tyres, that some of the riders I look after where using. (something to do with to much silcone to help release the tyre from the mould)
The stan sealant wasn’t sticking to the inside, (leaving a white skin so to speak) so after a bit of testing I found it was best to wipe/rub the inside of the tyre with a rag and Dot 5 brake fluid, then clean the inside with brake cleaner and a new rag. (think I even washed it with soapy water as well)
Then put an extra scope of stans and inflate,hopefully you notice it is better but you still need to inflate higher than normal running pressure and go for a quick spin, it should settle down after 2/3 rides (so might be worth taking a pump with you just in case it goes a little soft)
Also be worth checking the sealant level after 5 or so rides just to make sure there is some in the tyre and also to check if the sealant (white skin) has stuck to the inside of the tyre and if that happens all should be OK!Posted 6 years ago
Can I ask what method you used for inflating the tyres? My Speciallized went on and blew straight up. The Conti’s however don’t seem to want to stay seated on my Flow rims however hard I pump them. Is it best to leave a tube in over night to ensure a proper interface with the rim/tyre and to ensure the bead is straight? Any other tips?Posted 6 years ago
