I installed those in 28mm a couple of weeks ago.I bought a set of hutchinson fusion 5 performance 25mm tubeless tyres. I don't have an air compressor nor one of those fancy pumps for tubeless so I'll try with my normal track pump. I've read online that track pump should be enough. We'll see.
You were lucky then. The majority won't go up on a track pump but it's all rim/tyre dependent.Not really. I ran tubeless on mtn bike from 2006. Never had an issue with using the pump carried on bike.
I think a good 9 years of no issues says it wasn’t really luck. I was running UST mind rather than this non standards based tubeless you see these days.You were lucky then. The majority won't go up on a track pump but it's all rim/tyre dependent.
You must have had a very friendly rim/tyre combo if mounting with a portable pump.
Take them to a local mechanic or similar, quick blast with a blow gun on the airline will seat the beads. Then you can put the sealant in after, which is also not as messyI don't have one of the large volume pumps, but I do have two tubeless tyres that need changing on my off-road bike.
Does it work to inflate them quickly with a Co2 cylinder, then wait a while while the tyre warms up again?
What about the hairline crack in the rim ? That sounds serious ?I installed those in 28mm a couple of weeks ago.
Front went on no problem with just the track pump, but I couldn't get the rear to seat.
Took it to Halfords, and they got it seated enough to get pressure in with their "big" pump, but it wouldn't hold pressure for more than a few seconds then. Turned out there is a hairline crack in the rim. Once I got sealant in, it is holding fine.
