    Anyone running Conti MKII's with Stan's?

    curious how difficult the set up is with these and if they're holding up well.

    i'm running to old MKI's tubed on stan's arch rims and i had to change a tube last night. it was hellish getting the tire bead off and on. i've been planning on going tubeless but i'm waiting until i buy my next set of tires. i'm eyeing MKII's but if they're as big of a pia as the MKI's to deal with then i'm not sure sure they're my choice.

    I have been running the X King / Race King combo tubeless for almost a year with no issue. I did need a compressor to seat the bead but have not touched them since other than a few pumps of air every now and then.

    I loved the first gen. MK's 2.4 and had no trouble making them tubeless. got the 2nd gen. MK's 2.4 and hated them, too heavy! Both tires were easy to install and remove but did need a compressor to seat the bead. Also, had no trouble Stan'sing them up but went back to The Race Kings front and back. A much better ride.
