well i made the leap today....
took advantage of my ust crossmax wheelset and bought some ust nevegals.
so i'm running ust tires with ust wheels now.
the main reason i never wanted to go tubeless was because of the messy sealant and the maintenance.
you have to maintain sealant level in your tires, involving unseating the tire every 90days or so and adding more sealant.
you cut a sidewall or have a puncture too big to seal, the sealant sprays all over you and your bike.
you then have to deal with cleaning out all the messy stuff before putting your spare tube in.
so anyway, i did NOT use any stans or other sealant in my ust setup.
my thinking is if i do get a flat, i would have gotten a flat if i was running a tube, as well.
so if i do get a flat i'll just bust out a spare tube and put it in.
anyone else using this setup?
been happy with the results.....?
