So, I'm making ready for tonights night ride. I spin my rear wheel to see if the rotor rubs and wham: My tyre is stuck against the frame.

It's worst than the picture indicates.

It's a kenda tyre UST with Stans sealant. Has been running tubeless for about 3 months now.

 

I deflated the tyre and pumped it up again. Twist doesn't go away.

Too young to be married and no girl. Haven't been on the bike since Sunday. I'm getting jittery

tire looks pretty worn? old age/factory defect..

Tyre still has plenty of life left. Will open it up when I have time, to see what goes on on the inside.

 

Luckily I have a mountain king to put on.

1. Tokoloshe?

 

2. Jurius Marema?

 

3. Dare I mention the word....delamination.(Unless the unseen rim has been attacked by 1 or 2 above with a bobbejaan spanner?

Had the same problem today at the shop... 3 month old karma ust did that same thing. Had a Nevengal that did it aswell

Also heard that, but I thought stans was the one without amonia, which is obviously wrong, cause I checked 1 min ago.

Maybe a puncture from sunday, tyre deflated with not much stans left and the residue made it stick to the rim, drying with the air that came in with the hole ?

someone posted on the hub a while back he hung it on the back of his car and the heat from the exhaust damaged the tyre. Possibility?

Don't know - Tyre seemed to have same pressure as sunday.

 

How do I fix it. I did unflate it and it seemed fine, but when I inflated again, it got back to this.
