    Tubeless Ready Setup

    How does Giant deliver there tubeless ready bikes? Do they come with tubes installed, only need sealant added, require a rim strip, or something else? Wondering what to expect with my Anthem.

    The bike shop added the sealant to mine, a Fathom, when they prepped the bike for delivery. The tires were already set up and inflated when I did the test ride. I received the bike with tubeless wheels, including sealant installed and an extra bottle for later, ready to ride.

    My new Kona came with rims taped, tubes installed, and tubeless valve stems in a bag. I removed tubes, inspected tape job (which was good), installed tubeless valve stems, and put in some Stan's sealant. Pumped them up and followed Stan's video guidance to ensure sealant is properly distributed to all portions of tire/bead, checked for leaks with a squirt bottle. Done!

    Confirmed it was no tubes installed and tubeless ready. Just have to add the sealant.

    One downside. The valve cores aren't removeable. I've always liked adding sealant through the stem to avoid breaking the bead. Guess that won't be happening with this bike. Not sure why Giant went this route.

    because Giant is stupid, as easy as that. Outsmart them by installing new tubeless valves or suffer for a lifetime

    On which bike and wheels? I swapped tires on my new Anthem Advanced 29 Pro 1 last night and the stock valves did have removable cores.
