Hi
having a few issues with stans. wheels are stans crest and tyres are standard racing Ralph.
Done everything by the book, the front wheel is all sealed with no issues first time but the back has tiny pin holes all round the seam that won't stood leaking!
I will pump it up to 2.5 bar then check seam. when i find holes i wiggle wheel back and forth until it seals then do it all round.
when i come back its lost air so i pump up again and the same happens.
Any ideas??

Dont fit them to the bike until they have sealed.

Shake them well, leave them on their sides (level on empty buckets). Repeat in the morning, after work and then before bed - In my experiance they will soon seal up like that after a couple of days max :D

Good luck :D
