    More Questions on Ghetto Tubeless

    I've gotten two sets so far to work with no problems

    Minion DHF 2.5s on Mavic 729s and Holy Rollers on Ringle Mammoths

    the HR's are working perfectly, but the 729s are leaking this weird tan goo on my kitchen floor

    has anyone seen Stans juice do this to them? The tires are holding air just fine, but the first night they purged about a tablespoon of the tan liquid. and a few drops more this morning.

    opinions?

    For sure have seen this, with brand new Maxxis tires especially. Not quite sure what it is. Possibly the solvent that keeps the latex in a liquid form? Seems to totally stop after the first couple days.

    Cool, as long as it's normal doesn't shorten the lifespan of Stans at all?

    My GF will be happy. She was a little concerned.

    Great instructions on GoRide too, those helped a ton

    I've seen this multiple times with maxxis tires... Not sure on what it is.. if i were to take a gander it would be a possible reaction with the rubber preservatives in the tire and the stans? from experience it does not impact the lifespan of the sealant. it's just kinda gross looking...
