Tractor sealant tubeless….
So decided to try the cheap-o tubeless sealant… £8 for 1250ml watered down 2:1, OKO off-road/ATV sealant. Done some googling and on here and apparently their bike stuff is the same stuff watered down so… will see if it saves me some money… quite glad I didn’t have a puncture on the side of the trail, would be end-ex! That tyre and rim compo was a pain in the arse to get off! Could use some thiner tyre levers me thinks.
I hope my wife don’t mind me using her shaker…..

hmm, need to pop down to Mole for some sheep food this weekend: http://www.molevalleyfarmers.com/mvf/store/products/oko-puncture-free-off-road-tyre-sealant-125lPosted 1 year ago
Looked at their website and they do a whole range. Branded as Nu-track at madison and I think they have the price here wrong. Anyone with a Madison account want to quickly order some? http://www.madison.co.uk/products/cycling/tyres-tubes-wheel-components/rim-tapes-accessories-and-spares/x-treme-sealant-for-dh-and-electric-bike-tubes-25-litre-workshop-drum/Posted 1 year ago
MSDS back. Same one covers all apparently. Couldnt see any ammonia compounds mentioned. There may well be some differences to the material and the viscosity etc of the different versions to tailor them to applications. All I could see mentioned specifically were an anti-freeze and an anti-microbial.Posted 1 year ago
So finally got out on them for a cheeky hour they stayed up all week in the shed fine, checked my pressures before taking the kids school (16F – 18R) and by the time I got back the front was at 5psi… span the wheel drove it to the the trail put 16psi in again and no further issues.
Worked well in the local trail centre down here in Cornwall, took in the blue and low red didn’t have time to cross the road down to Cardinham for a more in-depth test run.
No issues to be had, will see how they hold pressure after a run out.
Only problem I had was a wash out on the front, not sure if too much or not enough pressure but it didn’t look like the side wall folded just lost grip. I’m still new to this tubeless plus tire lark.Posted 1 year ago
Just as a bit of an update, started loosing pressure within a couple of hours of topping it up, took it for a ride across the beach the other day and was lucky there was a helpful RNLI bloke with a multi tool as I seemed to be loosing air through the valve.
Today I broke the beads to have a look and most of the stuff had clumped up together so added a bit more than I did last time and see how that goes now the valves are tight…. If that fails it back apart and new rim tape.
On the plus side I got to test if my Lezyne micro floor drive hv will seat a tubeless tyre and it does!Posted 9 months ago
