Default Re: No more flat tires

Ok here it is, Ive been doing tests all day on the stans tubeless tire kit.
I built a pair of 26 in wheels using the stans kit and tried all kinds of things to get it to fail but no luck even with my biggest problem them peskily roofing nails in the roads.
I built a board just like they did in the video and used roofing nails and ran my bike through it several times. The tires are still holding air but the 65 lbs of air I used in the tire went down to 60 lbs after going over a patch of nails 3feet long and 15 passes. That was the only down fall to the product I could find. I had even used an pick on the side walls and the tire still held up. It was pretty easy to do and will be using it in all my motorized bicycles tires. Sorry for not posting pics but my camera is down.
