This thread reminds me, I need to do up a fresh batch of sealant & fill the tires again before I get stuck out somewhere with a flat.
I was in the same boat and failed multiple attempts until I picked up some of that stuff. Finally succeeded and only lost a little over 1 psi over a week.

They held air better than almost any other tubeless set-up I have tried. (Original No-Tubes strips, Stans wheels etc) I almost never had to put air into them. I was even off the bike for two weeks and when I came back, the pressures were right where I left them 14 days ago. I must say I was pretty surprised.
I just replaced the tires with new 120 TPI HuDu's last night.
- Put on new tire
- Pump up tube to initially set bead
- Pull tube out
- Pump up with compressor, POP!
- Put three scoops of Stans, do the Stans shake.
- Checked on tires this morning and still holding 30 PSI
Time to drop the pressures and go for a ride.
I think this hybrid tubeless set-up is about perfect so far.
