I set up my BFL's on Clown Shoes using a layer of sil foam and a 24x2.5/2.75 presta valve split tube. With a high volume floor pump and some soapy water, it seated easily.
Then, I removed the valve core after making sure the bead was seated and installed 6oz of Stan's through the valve with an injector. Pumped the tire to 20 lbs and did the Stan's dance. All good, right? After checking that the Stan's sealed everything, I used a razor blade and trimmed the excess tube close to the rim. When I shook the tire I didn't hear any sealant sloshing around, so I decided to add a little more. When I let the air out, the stretched tube pulled back into the center of the rim with nothing sticking out. Leaked when I aired up.
Did it over with a new tube and left about 3/8 of an inch of tube sticking out. Doesn't look as neat, but, it worked.
