    Sans Tubes

    I'm finally going to make the switch to tubeless with some home-brew tubeless mixture (swamp sauce more than likely). I have some 823s being built for the new ride. I also have few WTB Motoraptor 2.4 laying around that I would like to try. Anyone have any luck using this tire in a tubeless set up? A 2.5 is what the frame says is the max tire size. Other than Continentals (most of which I don't care for), what is a good 2.5 that works well as a tubeless that folks run around here?

    the Intense DH tires work great tubeless and they're only like $16 on Jenson

    Nice call $15 . The folding bead works well for tubeless set up?

    If the bead is snug on the rim they will work. I have had the best out come with wire bead tires. Swamp sauce ghetto is the way to go

    I just decieded to make the jump to tubeless as well, I did gorrilla tape on the rim and 2.4 mutano on front and 2.2 wolverine in the back, but I went with the new tcs line from wtb in both tires and so far its great. I only have a few rides on them but love it and they sealed up extremely easy, I did use a compressor but think a floor pump would have worked even. Good luck
