I'm not sure what the entire process entails. I had Woody's build the wheel and do the sealing. They did the rear only due to no safety bead on the front wheel. From what I can tell from looking at it, it looks like some clear wide tape like 3M paint protector stuff or something.

I have seen kits on ebay for doing this and it may be the same thing. I think Woody's seals the spoke nipple as well with Goop or something. I have had this setup for about a year and it works perfect so far. I "seem" to be getting longer tire life as well but that could be in my head. I manly did it due to problems getting the tire bead to seat while out on the road. Now I plug it and go.

Oh, ok. I was thinking that the little high pressure tube locked the tire to the rim and sealed it that way some how.

I've avoided running sealant in my tubeless tires just because I thought it would make plugging the tire more difficult if I did get a big hole in the tire.

Hey all... So I did about 2000 miles on my trip and the tire held air just fine. It still has a bit of tread but left but not a lot.
