    Tubeless???

    I'm new to the Fat Bike scene and I couldn't find anything (in my brief search) on going tubeless with Fat Tires. Is it possible and, if so, is what's your experience?

    Thanks,

    My setup:

    Clown Shoe
    Packing tape to cover the holes
    Thin closed cell foam to build up the diameter
    Schwalbe AV 10D split
    120 TPI wire Big Fat Larry

    The tape and foam were 20 grams and the tube weighs 220 grams.

    Aired up with a floor pump, added some sealant and have been riding happy ever since. No burps even at low pressures (5-10 psi). Seems to roll and accelerate better than with tubes. Could be placebo, but I'm happy and that's what counts outside of races.

    There are numerous quite recent threads on the subject. Do give the search function another try or just browse through the fat bike section.
