    Default Tubeless? Worth it or not?

    Anybody made the jump to tubeless rims?

    Been on the bike the last couple of weeks and have one of the perennial leaking tubes.... tires are "tubeless ready" so probably a set of rims.

    Worth the freight or not?

    I've been running tubeless for a number of years now. Definitely lighter and a lot fewer flats (no tube to pinch or valve stem to fail). It allows you to run lower pressure in your tires which not only makes the ride a bit smoother, but gives you better traction. With some Stan's sealant in the tires, tiny holes like from a shard of glass or thorn seal themselves up.
