I don't think it's practical or well engineered, but as an art, I like it.

BTW, having only front brake is stupid idea when you have freewheel rear. Also good luck with stand over height.

I'm from Canada and the prices are normal.

Road tubeless is different from CX and MTB. Don't setup non-Road Tubeless tires tubeless.
