I have tried making my own and it seemed to work just fine. Used Latex, Propylene Glycol and Water. Next brew will add some glitter as a nucleation agent...

I just go to my sock drawer, reach for those "special" ones down the back, soak in 750mL water for an hour - voila!

Tried a home made blend (using modelling latex) with disappointing results.

Now use I use Stans.

I dunno, I find tubeless to be pretty hassle free once you get t dialed after your first couple of tyre fits :thumbsup: , and I love having far less punctures :thumbsup:

Only time I have ever puntured offroad was a bad landing off a jump.
