    I'm pretty sure they have a ton of Stan's in there to seal so many punctures so quickly.

    A hydro ride is the result. But it is effective.

    ya not to mention the tire pressure they must be running in the video's.

    With that said, my last two bikes (29'rs) are both tubless, and my old beater 26'r.. I've pulled the valve stems and shot a lil Stans in my tubes... cannot even remember the last time I had a flat.

    Tubeless isn't perfect, but it does pretty much eliminate puncture flats.

    Yup, if you live in an area with thorns it would be fantastic.

    Sure glad I do not live in an area like that!
