I am looking forward to hearing about you tubeless tire experience Iceman.While I am slow to change and adopt new technology I can change…..Little Stoker says she is get me a cell phone one of these days.

RIDE RIGHT

I’ve used them before. I have NEVER had a flat when using them. You’d have to cut the tire with a cut bigger than 1/4 inch before the Stan’s sealant won’t seal the hole and even then you can just slap a tube into the tire if you are carrying one “just in case.” It does not have a tube so pinch flats and snake bite flats are impossible. The sealant seals holes from thorns or nails, or seals around thorns or nails if the thorn or nail is still in the tire.

You also get a much more comfortable ride since you can run them at 80 to 90 psi. And – they offer lower rolling resistance than tubed tires.

What’s not to like?
