    Non tubeless Nobby Nics running tubeless?

    Anyone running these? Was it a pain? Just got some new Giant(DT Swiss) wheels that are tubeless ready but the Nobby Nics aren't. They are 27.5s if that makes a difference.
    Thanks

    I really like the non tubless version run tubless but....I have had two "blow offs" of the cheap version of the NN ($38.99 Jenson USA) mounted on Stan's Arch EX 29" wheel set.....One time right after mounting and inflating.....Last blow off was on the rear at 30 + mph when I hit an erosion area. Rigid SS, I weigh in at 215

    I have since switched to Specialized control version tires, Captain rear, Purgatory front and I like this combo better than the NN front and rear. Rolling resistance is much improved, grip is about the same or slightly better.

    That's scary. I weight less then 215 but I ride all mountain style riding, don't want a blow off. I am pretty sure they would be the cheaper version as they came standard on my bike. I have a tubeless ready Hans Dampf on the front so that'll be fine. Might just do one tubeless one with a tube.
