    i use to run 823s tubeless with minions (non ust) and they were fine. However i had some incidents that turned me off of tubeless. now i run 721's with xc tubes.

    823 and Hutchinson Tires. I've destroyed some 729's and they seem to hold very good. I even run them at 15psi (by accident I didn't want to lower the pressure so much) and it's still very good.
    The only problem is putting ust tires on it. It's a real pain in the ass when the tire is even sligthly deformed and it requires too much work( or I'm doing sth wrong)

    im all about avoiding mainstream on my builds(twist shifters, pink frames, etc) but after lots of research and debate I went with 823. the engineering and final product is way ahead of the pack. The weight scares many but when you take into account the durabliility(where a 5.1 is subject to catastrophic failure the 823 may just see a little bend) and the tubelss readiness make the 823 50 grams(at the most) heavier than the alternative.

    Why use anything else if going tubeless??

    Anyone running their UST tires with Stan's?

    I'm new to 823's and have been running both Michelin's and Hutchinson's with no Stan's and haven't had a problem yet. Tires mounted right up with soapy water and a small compressor.

    3 years on 823's. There's no other.

    I've ran all the UST Maxxis and Michelin DH tires and right now I'm running some UST Nevegals in 2.35. I've put a hole in the rear one already, but a piece of innertube and some black CA glue and it's good as new.

    Snap.

    Fed up with pinch flats where the sidewall touches the rim. Never really ran low pressures either. Rims stayed true though. Gave up, now back on 721's.

    High Rollers, Minions, both UST & Non, all dual ply ST.

    I don't know if it was the rim & the sort of tyre profile it created for my riding caused flats but it just doesn't work for me

    Trouble was the flats were so far up the sidewall the sealant can't get up to the holes.

    NO problems, though I did put a large tear in my rear UST Minion at Angel fire. About an inch long. I replaced it with a Michelin and had a decent race run.

    I'm running Syncros DS28s tubeless with stans and have had no problems. I've found Dual Ply UST tires have the least amount of problems with mounting, sealing, and have the best durability. I want to switch to 823s so that I don't have to deal with the strips and whatnot.

    I roll Eight Two Three's laced to Chris Kings with standard Maxxis Minion tires and a little bit of Stans. Great combination, no problems with burping etc.

    That's the exact setup I plan to run in the future. Already have the Hadley's, looking for a swingin deal on the 823s. As soon as I find one they're gettin laced up.

    Do you cut the intermediate knob on you DH24s? What kind of dirt do ride in?

    823s on Industry Nines here. Been running them for about a year and haven't done more than tensioned a spoke or two. For the most part ust has been fine with michelins, but I do have a habit of ripping holes in tires on jagged, rocky tracks.

    823's on a 440 rear and a marzocchi front hub with maxxis minion tubeless. There are few hops and replaced a couple of bent spokes after 3 years but they still work great. I've been running them with alloy nipples with no problems.
