I think I'm going to cry. I keep on at this and just something and something else..
So I got this really nice rim. New hub. But this rim can be converted to a tubeless tire native and not the ghetto version (Rubber tire).
And hiss........ hisss.......... hiss......... is all I heard once I got the tire pumped up to 20psi. I normally ride around 25psi!
So after looking at the tire, seems they built it with no rim tape but just duck tape. At 20psi, a tiny flick would break that seal.... and it did.
So, NOT being someone who gives up easily. I found some gorilla tape and cut off a piece and tucked it in. And pumped it back up and it held!
And then, I sat on the bike.. PSSS!!!!HISSS!!!
So I am now down a rear tire still......after all this! Still not riding..... I am very upset with the whole situation.
