Tales of Tubless
My rear tire was low so I decided to add some sealant. Then I decided I should see if I could break the bead. It wasn't easy but I was able to do it. But then I could not inflate it tubeless, so I put a tube in and went to the bike shop. Mike could not inflate it even with the air compressor. It seems super supple sidewalls make it difficult to get the tire seated when going tubeless. He finially put on another layer of rim tape and that did it.
