If our image makes it look as if the Stan's No Tubes Tubeless Rim Strip is a tube, rest assured, it isn't. The Stan's Rim Strip has a Presta valve stem built right into it. It has a removable core -- not only good for replacing damaged valves but also for applying sealant. Stan's No Tubes Tubeless Rim Strips should fit most standard 26in diameter MTB rims that are 21.5 to 25mm wide. They work with Mavic's 223, 221, 317, 517, 519, 717 rims, and 719, Sun's 0 XC, UFO, and Sub4, as well as DT's 4.1, and most other non-Freeride, non-AM, non-DH rims.

Has anyone converted reynolds assaults clincher to tubeless? Have done alot of research, seems like a great idea. However my LBS talked me out of it. Comes down to this: in a steep decent, will the brake track hold up with the tubeless tire with all the heat build up. I weigh 200 lbs. According to H ... Read More »
So, I can get a pretty good deal on a set of campy compatible Easton EA90 RT wheels. 2013 model year. Anyone got any experience?
I like the idea of the wider rim profile. I want to try tubeless and being a campy guy, it is hard to find wheelsets that are campy splined and tubeless. Obviously th ... Read More »
[B]For road-riding[/B], which do you prefer?
[B][COLOR=#0000ff]NOTE:[/COLOR][/B] You can select multiple choices in this poll. So if you, say, race on tubulars and train on clinchers, and like both equally, you can choose both.
