No Airshot... No Coke Bottle Bodge, no doctored fire extinguishers...

Just a tyre lever!

Looks harder work than my fire extinguisher.

I did once try and do this on the trail with a burped tyre, didn't work for me

This is the way I do my tubeless with just a track pump to get the air in. Find you don't even have to do it all the way around normally, as long as you get it on both sides of the valve a good way both sides it will pop up nicely.

I guess you need to get one of those things to allow you to add sealant through the valve using this method then?

Nope I've always just got most of the tyre on then added the Sealant in the gap before putting the last of the tyre on.
Although adding It through the value works well if you have the proper syring thingy..

Any syringe does the job of getting sealant through the valve as long as the valve has a removable core. I have a small stash of 25ml syringes from my lab days that are worth pennies each, if that

Mike (Uphilldowndale) got some syringes for a bunch of us years ago which work a treat, think they were a couple of quid. Will have to try that seating meathod.
