    Seems good, with great new add ons, but definitely not as burly as the heavy duty racks.

    Dman's got it. It's usually not the stem, but air pockets long the tape. Tube method works. If it doesn't, and you're at your wit's end, bring it to a shop, it'll run you $20 and they'll get it right.

    While I respect and appreciate the tips, I'll have to save them for the next go-round, LOL. I got frustrated and impatient and figured "well, hell, lemme see if the sealant can just go ahead and do it's job" and it did (at least for now)! I'm sure the test of time will prove this to be a bad choice, but... I'm goin' riding today as they seem to have held full pressure overnight. Seems I might have a bent wheel though, so... I guess there's that... I swear I'm not that hard on this bike!

    Seriously though, thanks for the tips! I'm definitely keeping them in my back pocket for when I, inevitably, have to re-tape these wheels!

    0B2EA7E0-EB8F-411D-83F5-873127ECA01A.jpg REI has the shimano XT trail pedals on sale right now for about $84. Perfect timing because the axle on the right pedal has a good amount of play in it. I think I got my money’s worth though.

    Wow. Really didn't see them going THAT direction. Although I think there is a decent overlap considering the number of tacomas and 4runners I see at trailheads. It's the law!

    One thing I always do when setting up or refreshing a tubeless tire: after the tire is seated and pumped up to a little over max rated pressure, throw the wheel up and away, with a backspin, so it bounces and returns to my hand. Do this several times and swap the orientation of the wheel, so it spins in both directions. This seems to get the tire fully seated and gets a blast of sealant into every crevice. Be sure to deflate to riding pressure and do a few more bounce/spins to check for leaks. Wash off any leaked sealant with the garden hose, then ride around to spin 'em dry.

    Or he just went to any MTB trailhead out west and put 2 and 2 together. 2 Toyotas and a sprinter. Pretty typical distribution of trailheads all over UT and CO.

    Nah, I'm sticking to the idea that he started selling bikes because he just wants good deals for himself.

    Lol that's true everywhere, I mean Tacoma's are a great truck for just hauling bikes and stuff. I see them all the time at trailheads down here too. I see them a lot a ski resorts also, I think 60-70% of vehicles at ski resorts are either Tacomas, or Subarus.

    Funny you should say that...

    Nothing like parking ON the ski run, grilling elk burgers for lunch and killing 2 30 racks between 5 people to make a great day of skiing.

    When you are taking a break at an intermediate trailhead and the guy who is borrowing your pump's trail pup takes a nap on you.

    Two pics from my road trip out west after I rode some trails in Arizona. Was able to fit my bike and bed in the back of the truck and just hit the road. Awesome trip.

    I have experienced this as well . Eventually I bought new valves and it corrected the issue. The only thing I can thin kof is the rubber had degraded on the valve and was still allowing air to pass by
