stans tubeless on mavic 719s
Yellow tape on, rim strip on, valve core removed. Some stans goop inside.
Using a large co2 canister, I can get the tyres to briefly stay up, but they leak air and goop and go down very quickly. The tyres don’t seem to actually click on properly and once they lose their air, they are coming away completely from the edge of the rim.
What am I missing?Posted 5 years agodavewalshMember
I had exactly the same experiance with a RaRa, pain in the arse to get the bead seated, then the bead failed and filled the garage with spaff. Luckily for me, it was on a mates bike at the time and it was his garage, saving me the clean-up 🙂
Stans no longer recommend schwalbe tyres due to the high number of bead failures. I’d try again with a Maxxis tyre.Posted 5 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
Compatible Non Tubeless* tires:
29er Tires: All
Not Recommend Tires
WTB TCS and UST 29 inch tires are too tight for Stan’s Notubes rims and NoTubes licensed rims such as Sun Ringle Black Flag.
Unless they have tested “ALL” tires then I’m guessing there are still some odd balls out there.Posted 5 years ago

I’ve used 719s/Stans rim strips with Spesh 2bliss Eskars and also Maxxis Highroller & Minion (both wire & folding), no problems with any of them.
Does the tyre hook/click into the bead? Or is it just air pressure that keeps it on?
If you let all the air out, would you be able to reinflate without a compressor?
What’s the secret? Extra layers of tape?Posted 5 years ago
