    Hope Tubeless Setup of DT 27.5 350 SPLINE ONE XM Tubeless ready wheels? Mach 6

    I could not find the instructions on how to run tubeless on my tubeless ready wheels. So I set up my wheels this morning to run tubeless by removing the inner tube & installing the supplied tubeless valve stem and own sealant. To my horror, my tires were almost flat as I was going to begin my ride this evening.

    I've never had issues with my Mavic SLR's and Fulcrum Red Metal Zero....

    Okay, what went wrong?

    Those wheels use a tape strip similar to a Stan's rim so there's most likely a spot where it's not stuck down fully or there could even be a leak at the stem itself.

    Run a strip of Gorilla tape around the rim and pop the stem through. You'll be good to go.

    Thanks for your replies. Hey I just read the pink bike write up by Richard Cunningham and it looks like they too had to "refill" the air on the tires. I just can't figure out if it's tubeless or tubes. Anyone know?

    If your tires are not tubeless or Tubeless Ready or Sealant compliant, you will always leak air. If they are the correctly designed tires then you should be able to just fill them with sealant and air, spin them around, and they seal themselves.
