You know if you divide the molecular weight of helium in half seven times, statistically it isn't even there! .

Gustav was at the beach looking for a lay.

there's this girl, in a bikini, on a bicycle.

then my buddy Gustav threw the basketball to her.

the first one was so perfect that men (and women) will stare and agree almost without realizing "that's hot".
then the second third and fourth versions got progressively worse until it reached the zero possibility of anything good happening this weekend, with that girl, for Gustav.

it's not his fault, he just needs to try again.

be Gustav.

try again.
just give 'er the berries !

if you're about to type "hey that's not a basket ball"

stop. you've just proved how hot the first scenario is by zooming in on it. see, that's an example of looking to hard instead of just trying again.

Yea, it was blowing out bad around 3 of them. 2 right together and the 3rd one about a spoke set down. (2 spokes down)
Moar bad news, checked the front and over night it went from 50 psi to 30 psi.  :( It help good the first night but not last night.  :o

 I have taken off around a 3rd of the Outex stuff from the rim;



 I am planning on doing something similar to what this guys does;

 


 I have already got the sealant he showed;



 But he did not say what tape he used. (brand)  :( He did say impenetrable by air...or something like that. Packing tape maybe?)

Any advice?   

I think you just had a bad attempt. if the spoke nipples were the issue all of them should have leaked... which means they weren't the issue. the issue was the tape, because air made its way under the tape to the spoke nipples.

 Still using tubes for now to bed and seal everything up. Next tire change the tires will be of a tubless type and we shall see.

My sumo setup held solid throughout the track day!

The silicone and tape makes it a bit harder to balance though!
