Our Reader Forum is buzzing with tubeless tire talk, and today we’ll answer some specific questions that have come up. We recently discussed some of the day-to-day considerations of using tire sealant, and some of you asked for a clearer "how to" guide for pouring sealant into the tire without making a mess.
We covered this topic with photos and words a handful of years back, and also showed sealant injection through the valve stem with a pair of Bontrager TLR wheels. If pictures are worth a thousand words, does that make a video worth a million?
This video ended up longer than anticipated, morphing into a Beginner’s Guide of sorts for road tubeless installation. As can happen, one tire installed without a problem, while the second tire unexpectedly had trouble taking air.
Finally, we received a question about installing particularly tight tires, which we address near the end of the video.
