    Seems like I got a defective Big Fat Larry

    I built my dad a 907 a couple of weeks ago. Big Fat Larrys on Marge Lites set up split tubeless with Q Tubes and Gorilla Tape as a rim strip.
    The front tire has been flawless just like all the other fat tires I've set up for me, my family and friends.
    The rear keeps going flat. I went over to my dad's house today to re do the whole thing when I noticed a spot right along the bead with dried Stan's around it. I pumped the tire up to about 18 pounds and it started leaking air. I popped the wheel off the bike and gave it a shake and Stan's stopped the leak. Upon closer inspection, it looks like the outer layer of the tire is separated from the inner.
    I'm going to contact my friend at the LBS tomorrow. I bought the tires through him. Hopefully they'll (Surly) do something for me. This tire was probably ridden all of a half mile on pavement.
    This is the first Surly tire I've had a problem with.

    Because every tire issue deserves its own thread!!

    BFL's are dumb anyways...get a Knard or Schwalbe.

    Beach/ Pavement bike for a 69 year old. BFL fits the bill perfectly.
