Bobones has never said what plugs he has tried or the how thick they are. He just claims they don't work. That kind of detail is important.
First problem with tubeless this morning after probably 7000 kms, the IRC X-Guard gave out on me on my commute. There was a thin slit on the shoulder of the tyre which sealant just wouldn't fix and I tried and failed to get a worm to deal with it. Ended up limping to Evans by London Bridge, where I popped an inner tube into the tyre which will get me home.
It is a bit of a lesson, as I really should have replaced the tyre by now so it was a problem waiting to happen.
Any sub £100 GP5000's in 28mm spotted yet?
i still think theyre too much hassle. Plugs dont do the business when theres a hole so whats the point. 20 or 50psi is very low for a road tyre and whilst you might be able to nurse it home after messing about at the road side, id rather know i can patch and replace tube and move as if nothing had happened.
The hole has to be huge for the plug not to work. Ridden over 100 miles on 30 psi and I rode fast. There was no plug in that tyre I forgot them and the pump so I was left at the pressure it sealed at.
