Whilst replacing my rear boot and squeezing the tyre off the rim I noticed a lump (not the bulges seen earlier). After wrestlin' the Bonty off the wheel some congealed slime slid out :O

I've changed a few tubeless boots now and never seen this before. Perhaps I need a new UST strip ?

Seating the new boot proved tricky this evening but a little gloop managed to assist my frantic track pump action and get the tyre to hold air.

Ah well, at least the sweat and achin' pinkies are worth the effort of tubeless booties :p

Looks like contaminant to me, I'd guess water....?
