scenarios which can actually happen with a Tubliss setup.
When a tire is punctured by a large object which leaves a hole 1/4" or larger
( this can happen; it has happened to me ) NO sealant can keep the tire inflated.
In that scenario you need to use a patch on the inside of the tire and install a tube,
or fill the tire with leaves or brush. Or if you used a mousse you can just keep riding.
When the Tubliss high pressure tube loses its air ( which can happen ) the tire CAN
come unseated from the rim. This can be a safety issue depending on what is happening
when things go wrong, and if the rim doesn't have a safety bead things can
get wobbly in a hurry, just like when a tube loses all its air quickly.
For anyone who is curious about Tubliss, do a search and see what Neduro had
to say about them. If you cannot be bothered to search, Ned likes and uses mousses
and doesn't like Tubliss at all, and has helped numerous people repair their tires
when their Tubliss system failed. This is the truth, and I believe in telling the truth
and letting the chips fall where they may. I guess I am old-fashioned.
In mother Russia we do not stop for silly holes in tire.
