Todays project: home made tubeless conversion for DT rims.
hardware: two tubeless stems, from local bike shop. two plastic washers from hardware store, and tubeless sealant of your choice. ( I used Tubeless Slime on this project, but I prefer stans)
The project bike, 05 GF tassajara with wheels from an 07 Epic.
The tools used.
The stem and plastic washer.
Notice the O-ring
Inner hole of rim is slightly bigger than O-ring, so the plastic washer is used instead.
Washer on stem. Notice the pencil marks on washer where I will cut it.
Trim the washer.
Stem installed in rim.
Install tire, (don't forget to add sealant) and air up.
The bead sealing itself.
The stem leaked until the sealant got to it, but other than that it was an easy project. And i still got the Ahh feeling that you get, when you do something yourself!
This is a general summary, If you have questions on specifics you may PM me and I'll be glad to help if I can.
