    Air was leaking out of my stem and it was too big for stans sealer but found out the culprit. Busted o ring. Anyone know where to find some? I tried lowes yesterday going to try ace hardware and home depot next. Or I should just go to my local bike store lol

    Ordering the stems and Stans to go tubeless on the Trek, also going to get some extra stuff like a Chainstay protector, Crank Boot protector, some 3M Mastic Tape, and possibly some Race Face Chester Pedals since my pedals suck when even a little wet and crap like that...

    This is the correct Stans right?

    And correct Stems?

    Says they will fit the Bontrage Tubeless Ready Rims that I have.

    Good luck with that stuff. I need to go tubeless one day, but man that install is such a pain in the ass everytime.

    Thanks. Hopefully having the ARB compressor will help with the install. Current rims already have the rim tape and are ready for tubeless, so will see how that goes.

    The compressor is all you need to set that initial bead. Once set you're good to go. I'm assuming the rims already have rim tape to cover the spoke holes?

    Correct. Tubeless ready rims with the rim tape on them already.

    I went the extra step and put gorilla tape over the tape that was already on my rims. Did it towards the end of last season and I've only needed minimal top ups since then.

    Has anyone modified a dirt bike hitch carrier to hold a mountain bike? Trying to find ideas. I may attempt a modification in the near future...

    You should get a whole new valve stem with the rubber built into it. I have never seen just a small o-ring like that. You want something like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004YIE294

    After a month of research I finally ended up choosing the Fox Factory Tailgate Pad. This one had the most padding with straps for the downtube, and I get extra scene points because it matches both of my bikes suspension lol.

    I quickly noticed after one day using the pad, the bike will still slide back and forth a tiny bit, even with the strap holding the downtube. You could see some scuffing on the downtube already. Coming from using a bike rack where the bikes didnt move at all, this was a little alarming. Not giving up on it quite yet though, I found some rubber tubing at work that I slit down the middle and stuck to the bottom of the downtube. I have not driven anywhere yet with it, but it seems like the rubber tubing helps grip the pad and should prevent it from sliding and protect the frame. I also plan on putting some clear protective film on the downtube as well to prevent this.
    Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that uses one. Even if the bikes seem like they are not moving, look at your downtube and make sure they arent getting scratched. I probably wont care about the downhill bike as much, but the fancy plastic bike needs to stay nice!

    Also wanted to add that I'm liking having a truck so far, and I cant wait to actually take it on its first trip. Its pretty convenient to throw all the trail building tools in the bed instead of my car and hitting my elbow on them every shift haha. We just made the berm in the bottom pic the other night, thing is massive! All dirt, no filler!

    Dakine makes a cool green/blue colored tailgate pad that has Velcro straps all over it. That's our go to pad for shuttling.

    Yeah but the padding isnt as thick. The Fox Factory one has the straps in the same place as the Dakine one. You should check your downtubes because its the same design and they will slide a tiny bit.

    Interesting man, ours don't really slide much, granted it helps having more bikes together for less play. We pack our DH rides in there so rubbing is the least of our problems haha!

    Yeah haha, maybe adding more bikes and more stuff in the back will help the bikes stay put. And the downhill bikes have much more mass to them to hold them in place, and they are downhill bikes they will get scratched anyways.

    I'd just like to keep the carbon bike nice!

    No problem and you should definitely buy them! They make different colored anodized ones if you were trying to match your bike too!

    I hear you on that...I almost got a carbon M16, but damn any time a bike gets near my nomad I get nervous for a frame puncture from a pedal. I don't mind rubs and scratches though. Because of this, I think I will say aluminum for my dh bikes. Any shuttling place, you are bound to get a fresh ding whether or not you hit gardens.

    Yeah sharp pedals and carbon bikes makes me cringe haha...Looking at all the scratches on my downhill bike, I dont think I could ever own a carbon one. I'm hoping to do some shuttling this weekend for the first time with the truck, cant wait!

    Im not sure where you are located, but Im pretty pumped being on the east that they are slowly opening up faster than previous years to get the bikers there. Unfortunately my truck is in the shop or else I would be out riding. I live for the summer because of DH.

    I'm in Rochester, NY so mountain creek is 4.5 hours away! Not sure I'll make it there this weekend but I'll be there soon. I have a bunch of places on my schedule this year!
