I got a puncture in my tubeless Fusion 3 at the weekend, which I only noticed because of a few quick white sprays from the tyre as the sealant did its job.

By the end of the ride, I'd lost about 10psi from when I set out, so the seal seems pretty good.

The thorn that caused the puncture is still in the tyre. Should I:

- leave it alone, as the sealant has blocked the hole, or

- remove it, patch the tyre from the inside and top up the sealant?

Grateful for your thoughts.

remove it, you may not even need to patch it. if it won't re-seal, then go ahead and patch.

Remove it and let it seal. I have a 4 or 5 punctures that have been sealed with stans for a few hundred miles now.
