Tubeless after 7-1/2 months of storage in SoCal desert


Got bike out of storage, both tires flat.

Stans sealant (was white liquid when it went in)
schwalbe marathon supremes 700x 35
Stan’s tape on wheels

Removed tires & cleaned out the gunk,
similar to chewing gum &
some liquid oil looking stuff

tires back on, hand floor pump , one sealed easy
one I fought a little

Cool effect. Tape ok?

What is going on with your camera, or is that my monitor?

Still holding pressure this am. (A good thing).
Tape seems ok. Only a year old , not sure it’s life span.

Think I should remove tires & clean before putting in storage in March?
Might be easier to clean , sealant should be more liquidy.

pic on phone, wouldn’t load. Took pic of ph pic with iPad & cropped.
AT&T not work well in SoCal for me, ¿?
