    Un-holey Darryl/Floyd tubeless

    I've followed the tubeless discussion with the hope of going fat-tire tubeless myself.
    For me the goal is 90% flat avoidance.

    So, it was actually very simple. First time bead seated!

    Un-holey Rolling Darryl + Black Flloyd (gravel use)
    Rolling Darryl rim strip.
    One path, on center, of duct tape (the darryl strip runs around 1/4inch beyond the sides of the of the duct tape).
    Inflate a tube to seat the beads.
    Deflate tube and, leaving one bead seated, remove the tube.
    Insert stans valve stem.
    IMPORTANT: remove the valve core and inflate to seat the beads. With the valve core removed air from the compressor can blast in to seat both beads in 3-4 seconds. Air will of course roar back out, but the beads are seated.
    Four ounces of stans through the valve stem.
    Insert stem core.
    Inflate and do the tubeless jiggle/swoosh.

    Never deflated, and retained full pressure - 18lbs.

    First ride tubeless I had a puncture. Rotated tire for stans to do its job. Back riding to do a short 25 mile gravel ride.
