    It looks like great deal, lighter bike because tubes are eliminated and no need for expensive and heavy tubeless tires.

    I was just wondering if you are running this system and would be suitable for a Downhill bike?

    Is this how it works?: u put glue around the tyre and tape around the spokes and a thingy over the valve?

    if it is, then i dont think this would work on any downhill riding, infact i cant belive that this is working of any kind of bike tyre!

    anyways i would stay with the ol' inertube.

    AMB (Australian Mountain Bike magazine) have reviewed the product favourably.

    There is a supplier for Oz and I believe there is a new kit for DH tyres.

    I've converted to Stan's NoTubes via LBS and had two flats from stone cuts that the stuff wouldn't seal. Had to install tubes on the trail. I like the concept, but you need a high pressure air source to inflate the tires in your shop. Air compressor is mandatory. Paid $60 for the kit and it sits on my bench because I don't have a compressor to re-air the tires in tubeless mode at home.
