    Tubeless for DH/FR

    Orderd my gemini yesterday 04 gemini 2000 now theres a few things im worried about I love bombers and it comes with a sherman although the fork looks good but im worried that it might need alot of work to stay fresh. Another thing is the thru axel front and rear making it imposible to change tyres quick . Does anyone no of a good tubeless conversion kit that will allow you to run it with normal tyres aswell?

    don't let Pete hear you...LOL! No kidding on the Stan's. I've been using it for over 3 years with exceptional results. And on the bigger carcass DH/FR tires, the tubeless setup works even better. I wouldn't run anything but tubeless in any tire 2.3 or bigger.

    It was a site that I believe he created or stole expounding the virtues of tubes over Stan's NoTubes. Though he is very wrong, the site was very funny. And Zedro's right...though Pete is sometimes a punk...he is nobody's punk.
