Gone tubeless on my 1x1 - Conti Mountain King 2.4 on Halo Vapour X 35mm rims. Rear went up fine, front went up but was losing nearly all pressure over a couple of days, no sign of sealant leaking anywhere though.
Cleaned, refitted and an double dose of stans, holding overnight and ridden into work today to give it a good shake round. Waiting to see what it's like at 5...
Did you cover the wheel with a soapy solution ? Especially where the rim and the tyre meet. if you notice bubbles forming then shake the wheel around so the sealant gets to the unsealed spots.
Everything I read over on Singletrack and MTBR suggested that the Continentals can take a couple of days to seal properly. I used Conti's own method of painting sealant onto the inside of the tyre and that seemed to work well.
Much as I hate to agree with DJ, the riding method is also meant to be very effective at dispersing the sealant.
Nevermind... that's not what he said :-)
