    At least yours is self regenerating. It's also avail anywhere. Although, you might get arrested "trying to get more."




    Sorry, couldn't resist.


    On the serious side of mtb tubeless,
    I only run UST rims. I have had 2 flats in 4+ years. Both were because I hit a rock at way too high a speed and pinch the tire on the rim and cut it. That rim is on it's last legs too.
    It's a fire road.............
    I'm on a road bike..........

    Ha. Yeah. Though it seems we switched for different reasons.

    Getting new tires on doesn't seem any harder than normal clinchers. And changing them on the road didn't take me any longer once I resigned myself to putting in a tube. It's just that once I'm putting in a tube, what's the point?

    Also, I love latex tubes and can definitely feel a difference. I just had problems with their durability, especially around the valve stem.

    I have good luck with latex tubes overall.

    I got Zipp 303 tubulars on my new bike. After all the hassle it was to put on new tires I would never go the tubular route again. I rode them a lot last year for the wow factor but now I will only ride them in races. I use my EA90SL's with latex tube for all my non-race riding now.

    It's either that or I'd have to hate myself..

    The Jazz Gods told me to do it. It is foolish not to obey.

    Doc, I seriously keed. Been having a sarcasm malfunction of late.

    No-one has suffered more from flats in the history of wheeled propulsion than yours truly.
    So take my post as a bout of shade n' Freud - you know that German word we use when laughing at some other chump.
    I can't speak for the Jazz Gods tthough.

    I'm surprised by all the negative comments on road tubeless. I've been training and racing on them for three years now (fusions with Stan's sealant) without a single flat (of course, now I'll get one for saying that). I used to get quite a few flats before the switch. I find tubeless feels way better than clinchers, though not as good as tubs (although tubeless is much less of a hassle). Yes, tubeless can be a little harder to setup, but the benefits have really been worth it for me.
