Hi wclement7,

I've been tubeless since 2005 using the Stans NoTubes System. I have it in my all mountain bike, jump bike and FR bike. I also use it on my wife's all mountain bike. The interval between required additions of the magic sealant seems to be tied to heat and humidity. However, that's just an impression as I've never kept records. In one case I got almost a year and I can also think of other times when it's been required in as little as three months.

Whatever the case it's been a fantastic product and I'd never go back to the old "tube filled" days.:nono: For me Stans and a Gravity Dropper are two "required" conveniences for enjoyable mountain biking!

Thanks,

Michael:thumbsup:

I've got year old Stan's that's still liquid. I've also had it last as little as 2 months. So obviously it really depends. Here's a way to check: leave the wheel situated so that the valve is at the bottom of the wheel for half an hour. Let a little air out. If there's still a decent amount of liquid goo in there, a little bit will spray out.
