Tubeless tire repair?

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

I can't stans it when the product is unable to seal the deal for the entire tire. Sometimes, after filling the tire with a slightly higher amount of sealant, applying a layer onto the bead areas right before seating/inflation takes care of the rim leaks.

The hole is probably .25mm in size. Was thinking of using a standard tube patch on the inside of the tire and then cover the patch with some Gorilla Tape.

Who has had success with an internal patch and what did you use?

I saw this today when I was watching this video. Could be interesting. Well it does not like the time link, go to 2:26

Looks effective, but Iíve never had a problem with dozens of externally plugged mtb tyres over the years. So I canít imagine a regular use case for this. Maybe a more robust solution for plugged road tyres at higher pressures?

Yea that is what I was thinking.. a road tires fix versus mountain.

yup. Never had an issue with MTB plugs using bacon as well, but the pressure on the road tires just pushed the things out.

Might as well throw my hat into the ring to Dynaplugs. I have used a Dynaplug just once on a 160km fondo ride. Worked like a charm and I was able to finish the ride without issue.
