Derby mountain rims can be used with one round of adhesive rim spoke hole sealing tape within the center channel (Orange Seal rim tape is recommended: 18mm wide rim tape for 35mm and 40mm rims, or 24mm wide rim tape for 45mm and 50mm mid-fat rims). Derby road rims for pavement or gravel roads can be used with two rounds of adhesive rim spoke hole sealing tape within the center channel. (Stan's yellow rim tape is recommended: 12mm wide for CX23i, RD22i, and RC22i rims ). Add layers of rim tape as needed for a tighter tire bead fit, with tubeless ready tire sealant (Orange Seal sealant is recommended), to seal most tires to be tubeless with Derby Rims. When attempting this process, ride with caution during the first rides to observe the reaction of your tires and rims, and check for loss of tire pressure while the sealant is setting up during the first few days. Due to the variety of tires, some may work much better than others. During your first few rides check your tire for leaking and correct air pressure. If your pressure drops too low there is a risk of the tire dismounting itself. The plastic rim strip and sealant system allows the use of standard, tube-type tires, to be used in a tubeless manner. It should be noted that doing so exceeds the tire manufacturer’s original design intent and may void the tires warranty. Also, some tube and tubeless tires were not designed to be used with sealant and doing so may void the tire's warranty. Derby Rims is not responsible for any damage to the tires or Derby Rims and/or any injury or liability resulting from the use of rims sold by Derby Rims or tires mounted on rims sold by Derby Rims.
