Do these rims make my tires look fat?

Postby dgw2jr » Sat Dec 15, 2012 10:28 pm

Just got a set of Stan's Flow 29er wheels. First time I've done a tubeless setup and it was pretty easy. About 3 scoops of Stan's in each tire and the beads sealed immediately with a floor pump set to low pressure/high volume for a quick shot of air. Dropped 2 pounds off the bike with these wheels and going tubeless. I think these rims make the Purgatory 2.3 look quite plump! Quite plump indeed! :think:

Did you seriously put 3 cups of Stan's in each wheel? You mean 3 oz, right? 3 cups is WAYYYYYYYYYY too much.
When I was a kid, I rode bikes. Now I ride bikes and act like a kid. Some things never change.

3-2oz scoops about 3/4 full. So about 4 ounces.
