- Remounting Tubeless Tyres
Have you repaired the tyre puncture or just stuck a load more sealant in?
If it’s up and holding air then obv that’s the proof of the pudding, but you would normally repair the initial puncture – if you’ve flatted on the trail then that usually indicates a substantial rupture that the sealant can’t cope with.
Guess it depends on what state the sealant was in when you flatted – if it was all dried out then a tiny puncture could flat you, and adding more sealant could take care of this.Posted 4 years ago
Had a flat a while ago while running tubeless. Stuck a tube in and rode it. Tried to set it up tubeless again today. It went up but pissed a load of sealant resealing various holes that must have gotten there while using it with the tube and through the rim in the process. It is holding firm and no problems during a quick 2 minute spin round the streets, but is this par for the course?
Any tips for when I have to repeat the process please? Could do without coating my kitchen in Stans fluid!Posted 4 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
It’s usually an easy decision – you try and repair it and the anchovy thing will either plug the hole (most punctures) or it won’t (e.g. a bad rip of the sidewall). Most of the time it will be obvious whether you can attempt a repair or not.
Third option is the puncture is on or close to the tyre bead, which usually cannot be repaired. Even small punctures here can bollox you as they’re hard to mend.Posted 4 years agoDashaMember
I often find whenIi do get a proper puncture in my UST tubeless tyres its sufficient to just put a drop of Super glue in the puncture hole. When I do take the tyres off I always remove the old sealant residue and repair any holes by super gluing a patch on. If they’re tubeless ready tyres I use normal vulcanising rubber solution.Posted 4 years ago
