    Best Tubeless Conversion for Ibis kit Wheels?

    My Mojo is from the last year before the were discontinued. It is outfitted with an X9 kit and Ibis Wheels clad in Kenda Nevgals. I'd like to go tubeless.

    Anyone know what the bestest method for converting this wheelset would be? Stans tape, valves, and sealant? Ghetto split tube? Gorilla tape? Others?

    I've not run tubeless before so any pointers would be appreciated.

    Stan's kit works pretty well for most regular wheels.

    Stans is great. Yellow tape and valve. Simple cost effective and it works.
    Unless things have changed, non-ust Kendas don't work. They leak too much air. The easiest brand to run tubeless is prob Maxxis

    Non-ust Kendas have worked for me in the past, but it might vary from one type to another.

    Yellow tape and valve is hard to beat for cost and weight.

    I would also make sure my rims have bead seats designed to handle going tubeless. When I'm riding back from the trailhead, the last thing I need is a bead blowing out while soccer-mom's SUV is tailgating me down the canyon.

    I like the gorilla tape and valve method. Tape is cheaper than Stan's tape and seals well.
