How And When To Replace Tyre Sealant In Mountain Bike Wheels | The Tubeless Refresh
What are the benefits of tubeless? Well, you can expect a smoother ride as you are able to run lower tyre pressures without the risk of a ‘Pinch Flat’ (pinching your inner tube). The sealant will keep you puncture-free on most small holes! They also have less rolling resistance due to the lack of friction between the inner tube and tire casing 👨🔬. As the sealant drys up or is lost through holes you will need to replace it. In the video, Henry shows you how to refresh your tubeless setup!

Unfortunately Muc-off doesn’t sell that glue remover in the USA. Our ecology religion is probably the reason.
#AskGMBNTech I recently bought the Trek Roscoe 8 2020 which has Maxxis Rekon 2.8 tyres. I was wondering if it would be a bad decision to change my front tyre to a 2.5-6?
0:37 with your eyes closed lol
Didnt finish make me crinch
Lol i haven’t put in new sealant in ages bc it’s expensive
Figured it out
Not the same wheel that was tossed.
This guy was fun. Great to watch 👍🏼
I have put gorilla tape and the plastic rim tape on my wheel and blew it up and tested it in bath of water and there’s air coming out my spokes , I already had done wheel and it went flat after 1 day and it was same thing air coming out of spokes , what am I doing wrong ?
Hi, I found the new sealant. The link below
I had a punture on my new maxxis DHR tubeless set up with sealant, need to know if i want to keep using the same tire do i need to go now with tube?
hey im denis,what if my tyre gets flat and i dont have the fluid?what else can i use for emergency
#ASKGMBNTECH – hey guys, oi agree you made so many tubeless – related videos, why not make last one – and becouse some of the stuff is outdated and new tech is going out, new sealents, tyres, tapes and such, why not make 1 new video from scratch using most recent new tyres type new sealants, introduction to 10 most used tubeless kits and make 1 tyre of each kit and compare?
like all-in-one full tubless encyclopedia kind of thing?
Mucoff sealant is junk…failed me on both tyres
#AskGMBNTech my bike has a hollowed out frame and there are holes near the bb she’ll close to the shock mounting point. After washing my bike I have to put it upside down for a bit to let the water drain do you have any tips of what I could do. It’s a vitus sommet if that helps
I’ve used a rubber racquet ball and rubbed off the sealant off the beads in about 15 minutes with it.
Skip to 2:00 where anything useful starts to get said.
Muc-off has a range of products making bicycling harmful to the environment. Avoid it.
i just cleaned up my tire yesterday off the dried out sealant without using the glue/sealant removal spray, it was a nightmare but managed to seal the tire nicely.
I love you guys contents with the sense of humor : )
It’s time for unsubscribe. This videos turned in one big advertise 🤷🏻♂️
Can I clean the junk in the tire from the dried up sealant. Of should I leave it in the tire
Riding today I lost a load of tire pressure, I thought it was just a big burp (was hero dirt, much more traction and schralps than usual in dry old western aus). Chucked some air in, kept riding, got home and washed bike to find air leaking out between the rim and the tire. There is slight damage to the tire on the sidewall there, none on the rim. Any idea what could have happened before I pull it appart?
"Tubeless" unless u r a pro, BIGGEST HYPE in the last 5+ years! More hassle and $$$ than worth. I change my mtn bike tires and tubes at least every 2 years…never had a flat. No muss no fuss!
This is exactly the video I needed. Thanks GMBN.
"… then go to town,
But not really, we’re in lockdown you sausage!
That was hilarious
lol,… Henry 🤣😜
exactly the video i need after 2 months of home quarantine bike is stuck, probably need to check the sealant
The answer to this question is: NEVER. Because, you want to never put it in in the first place. Sealants like Slime etc. were NOT intended to be used as preventatives. They were designed to be used only AFTER you get a flat, as a way to get going again quickly. If you just dump Slime in your tires, it will eventually get into the air valve. When you add air to your tire and open the valve, if some slime gets in there as a bit of air escapes, it will dry in there, and prevent the valve core from closing completely. You will have a slow leak. Very few people suspect a leaking valve core and will be puzzled for quite some time, looking for a leak.
Does that mean you have to de-tape, clean rim, re-tape every 4-6 months then add new sealant?
Ive had tubeless sealant in my front wheel for 2 years and it still hasn’t dried out😂
Why not pour it in before seating the tire?
i love how he low key attack people
Hi. I bought a specialized pitch that I had setup tubeless and I have been using it as a commuter bike to work with the occasional leisure rides for 6 months now. I live in the Philippines where its either hot or wet. Can you recommend when is the good time to do tubeless maintenance? thanks
I feel the 2-4 oz recomendation does not apply to any larger mountain bike tire. It offers poor protection and dries out even faster. I use 6 ounces on any tire over 1.95 width.
Blah Blah Blah 2:03 Useful information.
Love the comedy throughout!!
In good ole procrasination fashion. I accidently left mine in for a year….🤦♂️ you wanna see how dry it was. So much cleaning. Days. Never again. Let my failure be a lesson folks. 🤣🤣
I wonder what a sealant would look like in the wild
Really helpful. I’ve just gone tubeless on some ‘tubeless ready’ Racing Ralphs. They were so floppy on the rim it was impossible using a track pump and I had to buy a new pump, use a couple of extra wraps of duct tape over the top of my Muc-Off tape. And they seeped sealant from the side walls, so not convinced of the tubeless ready claims. However, I’ve left them 24 hours and they seem to be staying up now. I hope the effort is worth it.
I haven’t changed the Stan’s sealant in my tyres for 10 months. The other day I pulled a thorn out and to my relief it still sealed. They’re not even tubeless rims 😅
My Tyre still has some old sealant, should i remove it before adding new Fresh sealant (different brand)?
#askgmbntech Is it better to have mtb suspension fork stanchions that are larger? My fork only has 30 mm, and I’m a big guy. Shouldn’t a thru axle make the fork stiffer?
Hey yall so for my tyres do i need to replace the rim tape and do i even need to take it off if im just replacing the sealant?
where in lock down you sosage 😂 that turned my bad day a little bit better
Can WD40 be used to clean the old rim tape residue?
Henry has the most valuable videos!
