Not enough discharge velocity to seat soft sidewall tubeless tires
by Anonymous
Cycling Enthusiast

This version of the tubibooster does not provide rapid enough decompression to seat used tires onto the rim. I'm sure that it would do a good job of seating NEW tires onto the rim, however, I've found that these can usually be seated by a hand pump anyways. However, the softer sidewalls of tires that have been previously used require a higher velocity discharge than this can supply. The lack of discharge velocity could be down to a couple issues: 1) the flexible hose or (more likely) 2) I was not able to engage the head without the valve core which could limit discharge velocity. I ended up seating the tires in question with a park tool shop inflator and a industrial air supply at work.
