    WTB Dissent 2.5 - Tubeless?

    Has anyone run this tire tubeless? I have one and it seems like it might work, good tight bead, thick sidewalls... but I'm kind of scared to do it without hearing from someone else that it works well.

    I have 4 Dissents setup tubeless on Velocity P35 rims. I have been running this setup for 18months and have had no problems. It will help if you setup the tire on the rim with a tube first to get the wire bead to seat right and you should be good.

    Enjoy!

    I've got 2 on MTX 33s, and the only flat I've had was a sidewall tear that nothing would have survived. +1 on them being a pain to seat out of the box.

    Awesome, I just bought 2 of these with the hopes they would work tubless. It is good to see it has been done before.
