GBS' Fatty Tubeless History & How-to

Years ago we were hanging out after work and one of our employees started talking about how he wished he could set his Pugsley up tubeless. We all knew this had to be possible - we'd never seen it done, but it has to be a thing... right?

A few Google searches later we stumbled across a video shot in someones shed in the middle of the Great White North (Alaska, eh), with poor audio, and low resolution... After watching it a few times, we finally got the process figured out. Some Gorilla tape, a few matches, some ether and a missing eyebrow later, we had tubeless. He rode his new tubeless system without issue for months, outstanding!

We decided to offer tubeless setup commercially, granted, we were not excited about using exploding-tire method to set up customer bikes tubeless, so we decided to experiment further. After several attempts and nearly burning our compressor out trying to seat the beads, we realized that the tires typically adhered themselves to the rim on their own once inflated with a tube.

And thus, our tubeless technique was born.

After converting many fatties over to the dark side, we knew many were approaching the setup on their own - rad! We all started by wrenching on our bikes in our garages. We thought we'd put a how-to video together for all the DIYers out there. There's a lot of techniques out there if you're surfing the forums; over the past few years we've averaged over 30 fatbike tubeless conversions per season, we've refined our method and it's tried and true.
