    Stans sealant "clotting" in tire??

    I fairly new to tubeless, a week or so ago I picked up a new bike that was tubeless ready so I went ahead and converted. No real issues to speak of.

    fastforeward to yesterday. I pull the front wheel off and take the tire off. Inside there is very little liquid, and a white rubbery crystal about the size of a golf ball. Its as though a good portion of the sealant hardened and stuck together.


    Pulled the rear tire off, same thing.

    Is this normal? after only a week?

    A week is the shortest time period that I have heard. I'm having better luck so far with Revo sealant. I'm going on two months with no boogers. Stan's is notorious for the "crystals" that you speak of. Many threads on here have been guys comparing pictures of this "alien" life form.
