    Tubeless tires and long term bike storage

    As of every year there is zero bike time for me from april till september,but it's the first time I have an oem tubless set up. I used to let tubes deflate a bit and that's it,I wonder if I have to do the same with tubeless. Tires were almost flat this morning ( 3rd month of storage),I just pumped some air in it for the sake of it...

    I assume you're using sealant. For that long of storage, I'd pull the tires and clean out the sealant. It's likely to start drying up and solidifying in one spot.

    Yep, sealant dries in a puddle at the bottom of the tire.

    If it is stans, I'd clean out the stanimals too.
