    Pfft, 29ers are the biggest scam perpetrated on the American people since the moon landing!

    Well, that was cake! Everything was tubeless ready. My Roval wheels were already taped up, so I just cleaned the inner wheel and tire beads with some hot soapy water, installed the new valves then the sealant and done!

    Definitely helped having a compressor!

    Nice... That is going to be the most upgraded and dialed-in bike that hasn't even seen dirt yet! You definitely fit in around here... :D

    Nice! :thumbsup:

    Did you try a floor pump first? I can't resist trying...just to see again what life could be like without a reservoir pump or compressor. Sometimes it works...


    Mr. Murphy?

    I dont own a floor pump. I just have tiny travel pump that I stick in my Camelbak and my shop compressor. I turn the reg down of course.

    If by Floop you mean Fruit Loops... I’m in! They’re delicious.

    But seriously, I’m game for making the drive to Fullerton once my fitness level is back up where it should be. Working on getting there...

    Was going to say I've got that beat by 6,000 days or so, but then I remember riding from Downey, out Imperial, over Carbon Canyon to the 71, to the SART; then back to Downey via La Palma (?). On a road bike, but would that be considered a Fullerton Loop?

    Hey @45acpguy, I like your bike.

    I’ve been almost 100% tubeless since 2007 with very consistent results. Usually mount with a floor pump..... unless it’s a crappy tire
