Going tubeless on Whyte T129s not happening
After some advice/ tips
Decided to go tubeless on my Whyte T129s, which has the WTB TCS system, initially applied new rim tape and put the tires on and inflated with c02 pump, air was escaping form every possible part of the rim, so came to the conclusion that I was doing something wrong.
Started doing some research and found the following review that suggested rim strips were needed:
So have now purchased stand 29er specific xc rim strips

but cannot get the bead to pop on to the rim, IMO because the rim strip is stopping this from happening, I am however managing to get more air into the tyre than with the rim tape, but the tyre still deflates quite quickly.
before I spend any more money on rim strips, tape etc, I would appreciate the input from anyone with experience of going tubeless on the T129s, ( I have also watched countless youtube videos on how to complete the tubeless setup, so am pretty sure I am doing it right, but not neccessarily with the right equipment)
Thanks for your help
