    BEST custom paint shots!!

    Come on! No one is going to disagree that these ARE the best custom paint one can do to his bike, right?

    The is the first ever ride on my NEW Heckler, judging from the mud on it, you know that I am loving it since its first ride.

    Stupid signs!

    Don't know what's up with the government departments here in HK, just MTB seems to be very unwelcome...

    Even the official association for cycling, the HK Cycling Association. We have only 4 to 5 official races for MTB each year!! There are road races every week and only a handful of MTB, that's really unfair...

    Envy you guys living in a country that can ride everywhere and won't afraid get arrested, and can race a lot in every level, from sport class to pro...

    Amazing. I am running a UST HighRoller on the back with Stan's solution. And the front, is a wire bead non-UST HighRoller ST 2.35, but now used as tubeless with Stan's solution, without any rim strip, just the Mavic 819 and the HR tire.

    Both tire has never been flat since mounted. Normally, I have two pairs of wheels, a pair of ZTR olympic with 240s hubs for some XC stuff, and these in the pic with 819 and HighRollers. I seldom ride any pavement with these tires, so they wears slowly.

    The rear UST tire has been on there for 5 months now, flats free. 2 scoops of Stan's solution and never add anymore, there is still some left, I can tell by shaking the rear wheel.

    The front non-UST tire is about the same as the front, 2 scoops, no flats at all. Just it has been on there for about 2 months, I changed it from the UST version to save weight.



    Stan's is really amazing, everyone should use them with 819 or any UST rim with non-UST tire. In this way, no more flats and weight is saved!

    Hi Ernest, i'm running non-ust tioga tires with stan's sealant on mavic 321 and they are a really neat. It's been two months now and had a flat on my rear a couple weeks ago.

    I had a flat once a couple weeks ago and found out later that i didn't used enough sealant. Refilled it and haven't had a problems since. I would recommend using non ust rims/tires to make the conversion if you wanna safe some weight but remember to use tires that's got a thicker sidewall.

    Just anything from that Stan's guy is great.

    I'd use UST rims though. You won't going to save much or even any weight using non-UST rim, because you still have to add the weight of that rubber rim-strip, which is about 55g for a normal size rim and more for wider DH rims. And, when using a UST rim, you know there is not going to be any leak due to your rim, just that your seal is not good, and you are not leaking from the rim-strip.


    Just my 2%, but all in all, I think that both UST or non-UST rim conversion is really great. His product should be in some kinda hall of fame for any mountain bike product.
