If you have a raceface dealer b2b login, yes. If not, your shop probably does.

Both KMC and YBN are fairly inexpensive.

Any tips for getting the bead seated on a tubeless fat bike tire? I've seated one side with a tube, but can't seem to get the other side.

I'm using a tubeless pump (the bontrager one) as well as compressing some of the tire itself to push the bead further towards the edge.

I've confirmed it can hold air when I deflated the original tube and it shriveled up.

Ratchet strap to hold the tire down while you're inflating?

Make sure you remove the valve core before you try to blast the air into it.

Also lay it flat on something like a bucket with the open bead facing down. That way the weight of the tire is working for you instead of against you.

The problem may be your Bontrager tubeless pump doesn't blast enough volume of air for a fat bike tire as it's designed for just enough volume to seat a regular tire. Use a compressor or air pig instead and as seraph suggested remove the valve core and blast the air right in.

Ok, I'll try out using a compressor today. Gotta head into the shop for that.
