I have always run tubeless for CX and MTB, and had pretty much always used Stan’s no tubes sealant. About 6 months ago I read good things about Finish Line Sealant, so I thought I’d give it a go.
With Stan’s I rarely had problems, but over time there was always a need to add more sealant.
With the finish line, I have never had to re-inflate from flat or had a failure, to the point where I wore all the tread off the tyre.
On going to change the CX tyre today - could I break the seal between the tyre and the rim??? … it was stuck fast… no amount of pressure with both thumbs would break the seal.
In the end I had to cut the tyre and pull it off the rims with a pair of pliers. This was fine at home, but imagine having to put a tube in on the trail
So - I guess the fact I’ve worn the tyre down before having any sort of flat has to be a recommendation for the sealant, but it sure was a pain today getting it off the rim
Anyone else with similar issues ??
