- Fat bike tubeless conversions.
Who here’s done one?
Been trying to get on the fat bike forum for ages, even with numerous emails, no joy.
I’m after going tubeless on my On One fatty and I’ve seen numerous ways of doing it so I just want to sound out anyone on here that’s done it and how you’re getting on.
Some use the ghetto system and others use gorilla tape and stans valve.

I’ve used sliced inner tubes and gorilla tape both with laminate floor ‘underlay foam’ both work…
Had trouble seating without CO2 canister. Inner tube liner made it very hard to get tyre on straight as it was a tight fit – next time I’d use less padding.
Also once sealed re-inflate with air to stop CO2 from causing ‘Stans’ going off / hard.Posted 4 years ago
what you want is a foam exercise mat from Decathalon,£3.
a 24″ inner tube.
a rim strip if using drilled rim.
fit rim strip.
cut a strip of mat to fit in the wheel,one or two layers,secure with a bit of tape.
ghetto tube as usual.
soap up the tyre beads and ghetto strip.
leave for a while.
deflate,and add sealer through valve,if you use schrader,it’s much easier.

I’m using Gorilla tape and bolt in schrader valves on a few Rolling D rims.Posted 4 years ago
No foam, just use a tube to seat the tyre then pop one bead off/pull the tube out/bolt the valve in, then chuck a couple of cups of stans and inflate.
I’m also using a split tube on a drilled out Large Marge.singlespeedstuSubscriber
A 24×3 would be betterer.Posted 4 years ago

My take on the subject was to get rid of a tube all together as did not want to remove a tube and then put a split one back in
here is the thread
light weight fatty tubless
done about 400 miles on them so far with zero problems and pulled out a couple of thorns from the back tyre which sealed up nicely .
use plenty of sealant as the floater sidewalls are a bit porous at first till the sealant gets to themPosted 4 years ago
