    Tubeless tire/ rim set up?

    Anyone have a good setup? Rim width, tire preference?

    ^^^^ Not tubular, tubeless. Been running tubeless for years on my mt bike with great results.

    There are literally less than 1000 human beings on the earth that would reap the benefits of Dugast's work.

    Some random dude in Peabody or Salem ain't one of them. And I'm not hating, because neither am I.

    I ran Stan's Iron Cross with Hutchison Secteur 28s. But never ran them below 5 bar. They were more of a heavy duty/all-weather trainer.

    No point in running tubeless in CX as the pressures are just too high.

    Check out this thread on mtbr http://forums.mtbr.com/cyclocross/cx...ad-735112.html. It seems a number of people are having good luck with a variety of setups, but there are a good number that also have issues with burping. I "ride light" enough that pinch flats have not been an issue for me with 25/30 psi front/rear, so I haven't felt the pull toward the dark side.

    You know you aren't supposed to run the Iron Cross over 45psi (3.1 bar)? That's according to Stan's, anyway.

    I've just set up my Iron Crosses tubeless, with 34mm Vittoria XG Pros:



    Raced on them yesterday at 25/28psi, but really I need to try lower. How low, I'm not sure, as I weigh about 52kg.

    There are hundreds of threads out there (google it) about tubeless CX. Not to mention this handy primer:

    EDIT: Beaten to it on that last link.

    Plz stop if you don't know what you are talking about.

    Anyway, I've been pretty lucky with most wheels(Stans340, Alex R3.1and 3 carbon wheels) with tubeless tires(Vittoria, specialized, and Wtb crosswolf). The key is tubeless tires however, UST rims never worked with any tubeless tires. They burp on pavements.

    I ran 28psi front and 30psi rear.

    The mt bike community has it down pat with a tubeless rim and tire combo. It would seem a perfect application for 'cross.
