- Removing dried sealant before adding tubes- worth the effort?
Putting some mtb tyres on for a spin down the ridgeway. Putting tubes in as it’s only for one weekend, but tyres have plenty of dried out tubeless gunk in them.
Is it worth the effort cleaning it out just for tubes?
Had an issue once with residue from an old tyre boot causing fiction puncture on tubes…but that was a road tyre.
Worth cleaning or not?Posted 8 months agoescrsMember
Recently cleaned mine out before going back to tubes with sealant in them (prefer less mess when switching tyres but like having sealant protection, plus i don’t run low pressures, 30psi min)
Wasn’t too bad, took 5 mins per tyre, get a nice even peel the width of the tyre and you can keep it going so it comes off in large sections, cleaned the beads up using my finger and thumb, inside the tyre looked like newPosted 8 months ago
