I created Ridinggravel.com in the fall of 2013 and happily joined with Guitar Ted in late 2014 to form the current day Riding Gravel. Originally from Wisconsin, my wife, 2 kids, spent several years in Colorado, before spending a couple years in North Dakota. Now we're back in Northern Wisconsin in the middle of an Outdoor Mecca.

  1. When I purchase my Felt Broam à few months ago. I purchase Stan’s tape to convert to tubless. To do so. I removed the rim plastic thing. I cleaned the rims with alcohol. I started laying the tape. It would not stick. I then used a hair dryer to warm up the rim more than house temperature. They did stick ok, I was not impressed. It worked and I am riding them without any issues. Did I do something wrong with installing the tape. Any pointer for next time. Thanks for the great podcast. I really enjoy your subject spoken and looking forward to each episodes. Thanks again.

    1. @ Sebastien Gagnon – I’ve found that Stan’s tape has a ‘shelf life’ and the adhesive tends to dry out, making it less effective as time goes on. This is a bitconcerning, as I like to have tape on hand for wheel testing and refreshing the various tubeless set ups I have. I try to store my tape in a dark place to help it to stay fresher longer, and this seems to help.

      I would avoid tape that has been hanging in the open at a bike shop for several weeks/months, as this would be the worst case scenario for keeping the adhesive fresh.
