After three weeks my front is down about 6 lbs and my rear is down about 2 lbs. The air temp is also down 35 degrees from when I aired them up. Will air up the front tomorrow and do a soapy water test on the front. Saw the photos you posted of your sealing and the only thing I saw different was that I used a stainless wire brush to clean and ruffen each nipple. Leaving for a month in Mexico in January and wanted to run tubeless for quick roadside repairs if needed but don't need to take a tubeless problem with me. If the wheels only lose a pound or so a day I would probably stay tubeless since I carry a small 12v compressor with me.

Sounds like normal air loss. Temp change can make a big difference. Maybe think about packing a couple tubes as back up? Quality tubes not so common in Latin America but I would go with your tubeless set up ... keep an eye on pressures for the first week. Hope they hold!

!que le via bien!
