Spent a few hours trying to sought out my tubeless tires for the summer. Couldn't get front to seal well so decided to go for a tour near to home in case the rescue services needed to be called (the missus). Indeed tire had gone flat by the top of the climb, that must have been why I was so slow! Pumped up and descended carefully. The problem is around the join in the rim, when there is too much pressure it is forced open. I've double taped this but there is still a tiny leak that won't seal with the liquid. Maybe go tube type next time.


Hot in the valley but not too bad cycling. Had to put a jacket on for the descent.
