Tubeless for Gravel/Dirt - Questions
My mountain bike has "UST" tubeless rims and tires and I love them. Just the rim, the tire and a bit of Stans and I've had zero issues (knock on wood).
My cross bike has disk wheels (cheap and heavy) and I was wondering if it makes sense to replace them with a tubeless system, and have those wheels stay with me as I upgrade the bike over time. I've done this with hand built wheels on my road bikes where both bikes have since been replaced but the wheels have remained. I think it makes sense as most new bikes come with cheap wheels...so I never have to worry about the (lack of) quality of the wheels on a new bike. My cross bike is a Norco CCX 2. I use this bike on gravel roads, dirt double track trails, and in the winter. I want to buy wheels for it that will also work with an eventual upgrade. I would probably buy another cross-style bike, though I may want something not intended for cross (not as high a bottom bracket drop).
Any recommendations for disk wheels that are tubeless, low maintenance, and good for my riding conditions (above) and my weight (140pounds)? Plus, what else would I want to consider?
