Re: Tubeless Kojak

Brilliant.
Took a solid week of pumping it and leaving it sideways to get the sidewalls to seal, but it eventually took.

Re: Tubeless Kojak

So small update, three days and it's not gone flat on me.
The day I forgot my pump I gave the tire a spin every couple of hours while I was at work and it's been fine since with no further faff

Re: Tubeless Kojak

They annoyed me so much on my road bike that I put solids on it.

And they roll like poorly cast conrcete

Re: Tubeless Kojak

Have you tried giving the inside of the tires a very thorough clean to get any production residual oil off (which may stop the latex coating the tire) and then 'painting' sealant on the inside of the tires with a brush, then mount the tires with more sealant in a puddle? Continental suggest this pr...

Re: Tubeless Kojak

Haven't got a clue. This thing showed up on my doorstep in a basically a paper bag from Canada, not in good shape, and I've never seen a good half of the parts before. Used to road bikes and pretty vanilla MTB. This is another beast entirely, but I'm getting there. Part of the problem is the horizon...

Re: Tubeless Kojak

It's a strange custom build that my brother had made for touring and towing big trailers.
Already having issues getting the canti's to not rub the tires.

Re: Tubeless Kojak

They do look good, but I don't think I could make the extra half inch of tire fit

Re: Tubeless Kojak

Have you maybe got a rim-tape issue? The sealant is more difficult to stay on it as centrifugal force throws it off and onto the tyre. Just guessing. It is possible I'm sure, But soap tests and such have pretty consistently shown the sidewalls bleeding air at best, and pin-holing at worst. Forgot m...

Tubeless Kojak

I'll assume that someone knows this pain already, I've been trying to convince a 559 Kojak to run tubeless for over a month with Stans, lately tried Orange as well. It spent a few nights on each side, and now I've been riding it every day, but it needs to be pumped every day, sometimes twice (40-50 ...

Re: Inherited Rohloff Very loud

I did also notice that the pawl springs appear to be missing, Not sure how or why, but I'd have thought they would have appeared when I had that bit open, and I don't remember seeing them. Ordered new ones, so hopefully that will solve the last of the chatter and such. I'll save the oil change for w...

Re: Inherited Rohloff Very loud

That is good to know, I did lose a fair amount (onto a carpet that I don't care at all about), and have bought more oil, but perhaps I'll hold onto it for next time.

Re: Inherited Rohloff Very loud

you do need to be able to move the wheel to accommodate chain wear; a fixed position for the wheel may only be a temporary solution. I was only going to put spacers in at the front, something like monkey nuts. I'm told that the NDS tries to shift forward in the dropout, which seems consistent with ...

Re: Inherited Rohloff Very loud

Changed the sprocket and gave the chain a bit more slack and it seems to have quieted down. Was thinking that the spinning while rolling was the axle tension being too high, but it does it even without nuts on. The frame is pretty tight, so that could be it, I suppose. Don't really want to manhandle...

Re: Inherited Rohloff Very loud

Oh well that does sound better doesn't it. Would likely be a good idea if I'm going to do a big tour like I've been thinking about.
