Decided to take a B-road last night on my ride. Looked harmless enough. Guess not. It had no out road so I had to turn around and ride it back out. Just a little bit after turning around I kept feeling moisture on my lets. I'd felt it before. Sealant getting flung out from the tire. I'd been running tubeless for about two months. Never really REALLY tested them. I stopped quickly to see how bad it was going to be. My tires were filled with thorns. Tires were holding air thou so I pedaled on. I kept hearing air leaking and feeling spray from the tires, but the tires stayed up and I kept pedaling. I made it 13 miles home from the point at which I acquired all the thorns. Vid I made up showing all the thorns -
I was blow away by how well the tubeless set up worked. Yes it was sort of a pain to get them set up and yes I think it would still be a pain if I went totally flat on the road. However it totally saved me from calling for a ride home.
My set up was as such - Orange Seal stem's, Orange Seal sealant, Maxxis Crossmark's, and velocity rims.
