    Anyone commuting tubeless?

    Anyone out there commuting tubeless? The benefits would be less flats (with stans). I tried runing the same tires with tubes and w/0 tubes and there seemed to be more resistance (not as smoothly running) when they were tubeless.

    Anyone have any experience with this?

    I run tubeless on a bontrager tubeless wheelset converted to SS w/ Maxxis Ranchero UST tires on my monocog

    I haven't really run tubes in about 2 years so I couldn't tell you if I notice a difference in rolling smoothness

    However, I feel the tubeless set-up is lighter than one with tubes

    I also haven't had a flat in two years

    I converted my first bike over to Stans Notubes around three years ago. I have yet to get a flat on that one. I have since converted all of my wife's and my bikes to tubeless. No flats on any of them.

    My commuter is 1.25" semi slicks inflated to 90, and 100 P.S.I. front and rear respectively. The rims are Mavic 717's (non tubeless) that I converted with the stans kit. I know that neither the rims or stans was intended to run at that pressure but it works!
