|Haven't quite sealed up.....yet!|
I gotta say, it's been a big battle so far!
I got the tires set up enough for a quick spin around the block or two, but they would not seal up enough to hold air overnight. No way, no how.
I kept at it for a solid week after work and writing duties, but to no avail. I was going to give up and throw on some tubes, but I decided to give my buddy MG a call. He is the one that I got the sealant recipe from in the first place. MG has set up so many tires tubeless it's crazy. From fat bike tires to cyclo cross rubber and everything in between. I decided to tap his vast knowledge and experience before throwing in the towel.

So for today's 3GR the Orange Crush looks like it always has for the last several weeks. Not that this is bad, but I was ready to sport the silver goodness, and I just can not quite trust it yet. Of course, I'll do a close in ride this weekend, hoping to bed in the USH/A-23 combo, and if it fails, I won't have far to walk home!
One positive that has come from all of this inflating-deflating, and that is that the USH tires have stretched a bit, now coming closer to the width of the MSO's. They probably won't get all the way there, but I bet they are 37mm wide now.
Well, that's the update on those. Hopefully I'll have good news later in the weekend. At least I am making headway now. Thanks MG! (Hope that the Dakota 50 went well for ya today!)
