I just got done following mbrmagazine's youtube video (How To: Tubeless mountain bike set up on the cheap - YouTube) on how to go ghetto tubeless. I followed the video exactly but I've run into trouble. Before adding sealant I attempted to test whether it would hold air or not, and it wouldn't take any air at all using my compressor! I'm using my factory maddux DC3.0 rim with my OE WTB nineline 2.0 tire. I used a 20" tube that I cut straight down the middle and spread over the rim. I used lots of soap and water on both the tube/rim and tire bead. I noticed my tire very easily mounted to my rim whereas on many HOW TO's you would need tire levers just to put a tire back on! Is this why when mounted there's no seal at all and I cant get it to hold any air?
