    Other option besides split tube would be put on additional wraps of gorilla tape cut to full internal rim width. That worked for mine.

    Thanks. I *may* have finally gotten it. I put a 12V portable compressor on it and just let it run and run, until every leak sealed. I'll know in the morning after it sits all night. I used my LBS compressor yesterday but kept trying to chase the last few leaks with my floor pump. Mistake! Gotta pick up a compressor for the garage now I see.

    Not sure there are any other tire options out there in the real world just yet other than the trax and the knard.

    A guy I know has Duallys on his custom carver, and has had great success with tubeless using one layer of gorilla tape. I have no idea what he actually did with the tape, but I ride with him every once in a while and it seams to work great.

    Cut Gorilla Tape to match rim bed width while still on roll. One layer, wall to wall, does it.

    The Chronicle works amazing set up tubeless on Duallys. Knards can be hit or miss on initial sealing but every Chronicle we have set up has snapped into place and did not loose a drop of sealant at the bead, unlike the Knard which can spew sealant out of the bead until you get past the initial seal/ride sometimes.

    ^^^ Thats music to my ears, by the time I can buy them I'll probably be fully back to fat tires for the winter, sure wish the Chronicle would have gotten out to consumers at bit earlier but looking forward to shreading on them next summer.

    nice! this is what I'm thinking of going with Dually and HuDu (my current tire). Did you attempt other tubeless ways other than the split tube?

    I just did the split tube and called it a day. 24 inch presta Qtube and one small bottle of Stans with a good floor pump. HuDus are 120 tpi folding bead. I have not burped the tires or rolled the tires with single digit psi riding.
    I put my Uma 90s back on with studded Bud and GC for the winter riding now.

    Any recommendations on what size/type compressor I should buy for my next tire change? I have been looking around, I don't want to spend a ton but want to be sure it has enough umphh to seat the tires. Just a dude working out of his garage. Thanks.

    Small ones work fine. Porter Cable pancake is about $100. Remove the valve core to seat the bead. Skip the cheap junk (Harbor Freight).

    "skinny" wheelset for the Beargrease. I9s and Dually's. Endcaps arrive today to try the rear on.



    Yeah they are a little tall with the Knards on there. Planned to run a 2.4 Ardent or Racing Ralph, maybe some SuperMotos.
