I like the speed of tubeless but have had a string of bad luck. I've had three tires and...

the first one was punctured by a sharp rock
second one the stem was broken by a stick ( a freak I'd say)
third one a metal spike went clean through from side wall to side wall (another freak?)

All in three months!

I'm new here so this has probably been asked before, but does anyone know of a tubeless tire that has some guts? The ones I've been using are the 2004 Michelin light comp.

I'd try something that doesn't have "light" in it's name.
and check out the slime post...it's an option too for some less freaky flats.

Thanks for that bit of advice, I'm now riding on a little heavier tire and have had no problems...so far.
