I've just had my first experience with 'Stans', CO2 cannisters, & installing a tubeless tyre. Quite straight forward, thank you to YouTube!
I have XTR tubeless ready rims. I have this evening taken off Kenda Small Block 8's (wirebead - with an inner tube) and replaced it with a proper tubeless tyre (Maxxis LUST Crossmark).
This 'little' bulge appeared 4 days after the Angry Doctor, while the bike was simply on its rack.
Seems to be quite a few Maxxis tires (not sure if it's isolated to Crossmarks - which are my favourite tires) with these little bulges appearing (mid ride), therefore rendering the tyre useless...
Not sure exactly how many ppl had had the same problem, but would be keen to write to Maxxis and ask "What's up?"...
I have an issue with my UST Crossmark tyre.
Few weeks ago I found that they had a few tiny holes in it. I could see the bubbles of air through the water after I washed my bike. So I ordered some Stan's solution as I thought that should seal these little holes up.
However they tyre still seems to be leaking?! I just wet the tyre again and I can still hear and see the little bubbles of air through the water.
What gives? I followed all the instructions on the Stan's bottle.....shake upside down, one scoop etc.
Any ideas why my tyre is still losing air?
Well just realised I had a torn sidewall upon finishing my ride today. Was a nice lightweight Crossmark Exception too Only had done a few hundred km on it. They sure are skinny sidewalls on the Exception series. The most abuse this tyre got would have been going down Andersons.
Luckily it didn't blow out on the trail. I just saw the tube bubble out a bit when I got home.
