I was putting new tires on my Jet 9 Carbon today and I realized that the old tires had never flatted. Never. Not once.They just sort of got bald. There was nothing special about them. I used Stan's sealant on a Stan's wheelset. The tires were Schwalbes, so nothing great. I have been running tubeless for about two years now and I can't even remember my last flat. I ride in AZ, so razor sharp rocks and cactus needles are everywhere, yet, I can't recall the last time I got a flat.
In addition, I can't remember the last time my brakes made noise, I can't remember the last time I dropped a chain, broke a bolt, lost air in my shocks, or even used my multi-tool for anything other than adjusting my seatpost.
So to all those bike companies and engineers out there.....Thanks! You all have made mountain bikes shockingly reliable!
