PostSubject: question about tubeless conversion techniques   Sat May 14, 2011 2:11 pm

So I've got my bike back up and running. Oh the life of too few bike shops...
Anyway, I'm saddled up and have my wheels converted back to tubeless. I'm wondering what technique you guys use. I've always used the "flick, rotate, wait, repeat" technique. This time I just bounced the wheel on the ground a few revolutions, rotating at intervals of each spoke. It sealed all the leaks and was much faster and didn't put the burn to my forearms. cheers

I have no idea what "flick, rotate, wait, repeat" means. I usually put sealant in, seat it with a CO2 cartridge, pump up to 60psi with hand pump.....rotate wheel every direction to get sealant moved around.
*****disclaimer: If at anytime none of this seems to work, I throw the tire toward the wall as hard as I can while cussing so loud my neighbors can hear me. I proceed to the fridge, grab a beer, THEN repeat. I have never had to do this more than twice!
