Not sold? Less see...... If it had been a tube the tire and the tube would have been ruined. If I had a patch big enough to patch the inside of the tire it would have held air tube or Tubliss [the product name]. If it had been a true tubeless tire the tire would not have been pluggable and the tire would not have been ridable flat.

Give it some thought Elvis but I'm happy with the system so far.

I got RednBlack off the trailer and pushed into the shop since Travis installed the tubless system for me. No flats yet.
So far so good.

So the tire was so jacked it would of been unrideable with a new tube in it? Sure you wasn't shot by a hillbilly?

Not unless that was where they were aiming. All my Hillbilly friends hit where they shoot.

I spent part of a day trying to ride those rough trails around Lake Winona. Me and vanpelt999 tried two different trails over a mountain but turned back from each one because they were getting so narrow and tight. Now I'm thinking that we should have pressed on, we might have found our way through. Charlie wasn't kidding when he said they were bad trails, they were severely rutted. I felt like I was riding in a creek or wash that was going up or down at a severe angle. Pretty rough but actually kind of fun.

Because you haven't clicked the link in my signature line? The original thread had some kind of problem where I couldn't finish uploading the tracks.

Did you take a look at my tracks for Day two? Were you on that trail?

No, I haven't looked at the tracks cuz I got no GPS. But when were out there, I was following a guy with a GPS and we were still lost.
