Tubeless De-Rimming: How to Fix On Trail


Shepherd

Recommended Posts

This I have to see....any wheel and tyre?

 

And by handpump you are talking about a little pompie that you carry with you....not a floor pump

 

I reckon as long as the combo had been tubeless previously (so a TR rim & TR tyre, with a decent conversion), it should be achievable (i hope :whistling: )

 

I have managed with a hand pump on the trail before with a clown wheel no less.

And the video footage has to be posted.

 

My guess is that the Windhoek team will win, in fact even a warm Coke team would win against Castle Lite ;)

Sure sure....not a brand new tyre with packaging memory...it has to have been tubeless before on the same rim.

 

Sean....citec with x-king protection comes to mind as the ideal candidate?

 

PS if you get this right brother, you will be my hero....screw bakkies botha

Rouxtjie... its the wheel we sukkeled with, with the compressor at your place.

 

I can see we will be going back to your spot to finish the job with a compressor so I can ride again.

we got it right after about 8 minutes though...but we had two secret weapons 240l / min compressor and gummibeary juice as you call it.

 

You cannot argue....my assembly line for tubeless conversions worked lekker....we had lots of time for suiping.

To make things a little more fair I think we need to give super mil a fresh cup of stan's....not leave hime with the sealant already in there.

 

so one citec wheel

one conti protection x-king

one cup of fresh stan's...supermil can choose if he wants it or not..or to re-use whatever is in the tyre already

one handpompie of supermil's choice

Take your time... I have lots of beer to get through

 

my consumption is 4/Hour, if I put my foot down it goes up to about 6 or 7 but then the piss breaks start at 1 per beer

i vote no to the new cup of stans/ sealant, this is supposed to be a trail side fix, unless you ride with an extra bottle of sealant or happen to burp in front of a bike shop/ sportsmans etc you need to use whats in the tire at the time. just my 2c though, am game to come watch, Sean send me an invite ill be there.

Agree with this. No new sealant! Meant to be a trail side fix (but with beer!)

 

Edit: I must just remember to fill my CamelBak with dish washing liquid :whistling:

I hear you, but let's play ideal world...cup half full. Lets say he rides with one of those mini bottles of stan's...I sometimes do. Its roughly one cup.

 

I want to make this slightly possible.

 

The issue he is going to face isn't sealant though....its air....if he said bomb, its not that hard given you have a stash of bombs....but a handpompie...not even a footpump....this is where my talent runs out

Preferance would be for Monday or Tuesday as I need to race prep my bike for CT on Wednesday evening.

So, I'm not available Wed/Thursday/Friday next week (heading to CT to roll down hills there)
