    27.5+ OEM Schwalbe tires on 2017 Salsas

    Has anybody tried or had any luck setting up the stock Performance Schwalbe tires that come stock on a lot of the 2017 Salsa bikes tubeless?

    I know Schwalbe says the performance line is not tubeless ready, but I've read a few threads where people do with no problems. Only difference is that they aren't the 27.5 x 3.0" models.

    I wouldn't do it--I've had non-tubeless tires blow off the rim and dump me on the dirt. I know some folks have success with Performance-level tires set up tubeless, but others have them pop off same as me, and a big tire like a 2.8-3 that you're going to run at a low pressure would be even more likely to burp or blow off the rim I would think...

    Thanks for the advice. I had a pretty good hunch that would be the answer. I can't believe Salsa doesn't go ahead and spec the Evo Schwable tires across the entire line. I mean how much more could it possibly add to the price...$50?

    Oh well, I guess I'll get some 3.0 Nobby Nics and/or Rocket Rons...maybe NN up front RR in the back for my new Fargo.
