    Is this normal??? I'm totally confused...

    I just took my front tire off to redo my ghetto tubeless setup and found this little surprise waiting for me. So, is it normal to have a stans coral growing in your tire?

    indeed, and if they are good, you can sell them on ebay as aquarium decorations.

    I keep my allstars in a collection on my work bench.....I believe monkeybutt has the record for the largest one....at least the largest every snapped and posted.....came out of a WTB mutano if I remember correctly.....sometimes I put mine back in after changing tires....I get sentimental like that.

    They also make a great gauge of how much fluid you have left in your tires....you can tell by the sound the "Stans Monster" makes when you slowly spin your tire by hand....if it slowly bumps its way down the tire....you still have a nice moist environment in there....if you hear it drop fast down your tire....time for more Stans.

    I found one in my tire today as well. Does the slime brand sealant do this as well?

    It's beautiful. I wonder what mine will look like when I pull it out of my almost 3" wide tires.

    Did you use a CO2 cartridge to inflate your tire?

    Nope. Just good ol' fashioned air.

    How long does it take for this to happen? I just recently did the ghetto tubeless conversion on my 29er. I put about 3-4 oz of Stans in there. I'm guessing storing the bike in the garage this time of year will probably speed this coral growth up? Also, when you have to add more Stan's in, is there an easy way of doing this without having to redo the entire tube setup?

    Read the Stan's site.

    That is called a "crystaline entity".

    Weird...I've been running Stans for a couple years now and have yet to encounter/create a Stans Monster.

    I never had one that large, or cool looking before, but I have had a few globules. I've heard and also found that about two months is the expected life of Stans before another refill. It would always be a good idea to pull the tire off the wheel to clean out the gunk, especially if you are concerned about weight. I usually add another 2-4 oz's every two months.
