    Finally going tubless

    So I've ordered my tubeless kit from uberbikes. Has any0ne used this tubeless system before.

    The guy in Evans told me not to buy what they stock (stans)

    I have used Stan's sealant and it dries up pretty quick and you end up with an urchin-like ball of dried up rubber rolling around in your tire.

    I have had better luck using Orange Seal Cycling. It is thicker, has glitter in it to help close up the holes, and when it dries up it leaves a rubber film within the tire walls.
    Everything is better on 2 wheels!

    You won't regret going tubeless. Besides the (5 minute) learning curve, it's fairly fast to setup.

    I use Stans with fine results. My front tire holds like champ. My rear takes a couple ounces every 2-3 months.

    Yes and so far so good although with 2.6 wide tyres I used 500ml of liquid... not sure if this is normal

    Holy smokes, 16oz to do two tires?

    I run about 4oz per tire for 27.5x2.4. Been trying out the Orange Seal endurance stuff. So far, no issues

    You used at least 2x as much sealant as was needed. I use 3oz/tire on 27.5x2.5".

    I went tubeless for the first time as well... when they say your bike becomes more “nimble”, “playful”, or better handling - it’s actually true. Can’t believe I had tubes in my tires all this time. Another bonus- the weight- I’m not a weight weenie but I ride a 27.5+.... huge difference...
