That would make sense. I used co2 because it releases the gas quickly to pop the rims.
Any ideas on how to clean the dried and crusty sealant from the inside of the tyre. If i can find the ho!e again then ill try patching it. Otherwise im going with conti 4 seasons, conti tubes and sealant in the tube
dried latex just scrubs/peels off. Maybe there is a trick to shifting it quickly but if so I have not found it.
FWIW if you seat the tyre using CO2, then deflate and reinflate with air, you may avoid the sealant drying up so quickly; it takes time for the CO2 to dissolve in the sealant. There are also sealants that claim a longer life and/or that they don't thicken when CO2 is used. However I'm not in the best position to advise which ones are any good; there are many and I only have direct experience of a few.
Having bought tubeless wheels/tyres and found that I can mount and demount them, I'd be tempted to persevere a bit longer. I think that if (hawthorn?) hedgecuttings are your problem, they ought to seal OK provided the sealant is still fluid.
However I must say that I'm not tempted to get a tubeless setup myself though; tubeless compatible rims seem to make any tyre a tight fit and this is in contrast to the tyres and rims I'd normally choose to use on a road bike. I only use my road bike fitted with the lightest/fastest tyres in the summer these days, so punctures are rarely a problem anyway. When they do happen my tyres come off the rims very easily so a tube change is a two-minute irritation. Given that fitting tubeless tyres is a bit of a palaver I'd probably have to be looking at getting ten or twenty (avoidable) punctures a year before I would be tempted to make a change. IME this is only likely to happen if you insist on running the lightest fastest tyres available all winter long.
