    any issues with stans crest rims and Racing ralphs tubeless in 2.25 & 2.35?

    looking to replace my ikons with racing ralphs. I have been running the RA RAs with tubes the past two weeks and I am looking to try them tubeless now. Thanks for any feedback.

    My friend runs Ra Ra's tubeless (snakeskin) on his Niner with a DT240/Crest wheelset..No problems at all. I've run RaRa's, Rocket Ron's, and Nobby Nic's on my Arch Ex with no problems whatsoever.

    *Note* If you have non-snakeskin tires, sealing the sidewalls can be a week long process, took a while for my Rocket Ron's to seal up.

    I have the Stan's Crest rims with Racing Ralphs on my 650B Ventana El Bastardo and they work awesome together. Just make sure you over inflate the tubes to about 40 lbs when you first seat the tube and make sure you hear the pop that the tube has seated. That way you will get a great seal. I usually use a compressor to seat the tube and do it quickly so the tube seats quickly.

    I just setup a pair of non-snakeskin Ra Ra's on a set of Arch EX's and it has been quite the process to get the sidewalls to stop weeping. 2 rides on them and they are getting better, but not completely sealed yet.
