    Tubeless!! ?

    Hello. I'm looking for a little help and couldn't find the answers below, so here's my question.

    I'm using Enve twenty9 XC disc clinchers which are tubeless ready (with the MTN tubeless kit). Will I have any issues mounting Stans Raven Cyclocross tires? What other relative fast tubeless cx tire should I consider (35mm preferable)? This would be a race only setup.

    Thank you.

    Should have no issues. Try Mud2s and Kendas.

    Shouldn't have issues. Might want to get some rimstrips just in case (if you don't use them, you can always return them).

    Specialized The Captain 2BR is a nice tire, 700x34c
    as well as Vittoria Cross XG Pro, 700x34c (the bead is tighter than that of Specialized).

    Though... Enve's tape looks a lot like Gorilla duct tape.... so you're paying a lot more money for pre-cut tape with the Enve name on the cardboard.
    2010 Specialized Secteur Elite upgraded with 32T cassette and does not have Stan's (yet)
    2009 Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er upgraded with 36T cassette and Stan's Arch EX rims and tubeless. Considering a 1x10 upgrade
    2013 Cannondale CAADX-6 Tiagra upgraded to 32T cassette and Stan's Alpha 400 rims and tubeless
    2008/2009 Burton T6 156cm with Burton Triad Bindings & DC Judge boots

    You are correct. Enve tubeless tape is Gorilla Tape.

    Even better, McMaster sells generic strapping tape in a variety of sizes and quantities.

    I've had mixed results with Michelin Mud2s and very good results with the Specialized 2bliss tires. Tubeless for CX can work very well but requires some experimentation. It is not a plug and play solution.
