Just completed my first tubeless tire install - hope they all go this easy. Mounted a WTB Trail Boss 2.4" on a DT Swiss 442 rim using just a floor pump. Put the tire on dry and aired it right up to 40lbs.; let it sit for about 20 minutes and it held pressure fine; popped the valve core and put in the Stan's, aired it back up, and it looks like it's good to go.

I was nervous getting started, but the process couldn't have gone more smoothly.

One thing I do after installing a tire is to move it around on it's side, banging it lightly on the ground as I turn it and then let it lay there for about 5 mins. Then do the other side. This would like the Stans (or whatever you're using) seep into the bead.
Good deal and you'll never go back to tubes.

Finally popped your tubeless cherry? Nice!

You've been at this for a long time, so you must be a little stubborn. :D The good news is that you are so going to love being tubeless. One of the top ten mtb innovations in recent'ish years.

I've been riding them for about nine months, but the first ones were set up by the shop that sold me the rims. You're right about my being stubborn, though - don't know why I resisted as long as I did and regret not getting on them sooner.
