    New question here. Timberjack NX1 Stock Tires Tubeless

    Has anyone had any luck converting the WTB Rangers on the Timberjack NX1 to tubeless, even though they aren't tubeless ready?

    I did it with the stock rangers on my TJ GX1. The lbs I bought the bike from did it for me since I've never done the conversion myself. They've held up great for at least a few months now, and I haven't had any sealant leaking out of the sidewalls like some folks have. I think the guy at the lbs said he used stans sealant. Haven't had any flats either, and I've got several hundred miles on them tubeless running around 15 psi on the front and rear.

    Awesome! I think I'm going to try that soon. I've heard that the sidewalls leaking only happens if you don't get quite the right seal in the beginning with the sealant.

    My experience so far is that Trucker sealant works fine but Stan's has wept through
