- UST conti tyres on flow rims – having trouble getting tubeless
My usual technique is inflate with a tube, remove tube leaving one wall on the rim etc etc
I’m not getting past this first stage, I inflate with a tube, remove tube and the tyre pings off the rim as I’m inserting the tubeless valve.
Anyone got a tip for this? I’ve done loads of different tyres and never experienced this before. I’m trying a UST mountain king and a UST rubber queen and both are doing it.
Maybe I’m not leaving them inflated by tube for long enough? Only a few minutes.Posted 5 years agovotchySubscriber
Fitted UST RQ’s straight out of the box, soapy water on bead, seated using ghetto inflator, removed valve core, insert required jizz, reseat with ghetto inflator, once seated inflate to approx 35psi (leave pump attached to ghetto inflator) slide tube off valve and put finger over valve to stop air escaping, remove finger and quickly screw valve core back in, top back up to 35psi, do the funky jizz dance then adjust pressure accordingly – happy days 😀Posted 5 years ago
