Prevent Tubeless Flats with Rubber Cement

One of the downsides of having Tubeless Fat Tires is that it’s nearly impossible to re-inflate them if you get a flat on the side of the road, but it seems a bit of Rubber Cement can solve that problem.

I’ve found that adding a bit of Rubber Cement to the outside of a Split-Tube (or Ghetto Tubeless) setup seals the seams well enough to allow for a standard air pump to re-inflate it. This at least works if the tire goes flat while stationary, though I have not tested it on a flat that occurred while riding.
