Thinking of going tubless, I understand that when you use Stans sealant it has a limited life before "drying up", and needs to be re-plenished. How long before you have to do this, and is the old stuff easy to clean out of your tires, as in water soluable ?? Any one with caffe latex expereince ?? Thanks

Whatever

I now mix Stans with a little Slime. During the very hot summer in Folsom area, it dries up after several weeks. It does not clean off the inside of the tires very easily. During the winter it should last several months. I am not a weight watcher, but I have not had a flat tire on one of my tubeless set ups yet and that is what's important to me.

Try Simple Green for removing Stans.

My 29er in the Chico heat lasted a couple months, my garage stays pretty mild for temps and may help it last longer. I did get a nice Stans coral when I popped the bead to check the condition of the Stans.

If you happen to have Bontrager wheels, they make rim strips for going tubeless. Several friends use Gorilla tape.
