Road Tubeless on a fixed gear?
Besides the price, is there any reason this is a bad idea.
I ride fixed with a front brake, if it matters in this scenario...
I'm 6'2" and around 225lbs. I'm very diligent about keeping my tires at the max 110psi, but have been getting random pinch flats.
I'm a good rider and can roll up/down curbs and whatnot pretty gracefully. The flats are random in that they happen when I'm on relatively smooth ground and haven't done anything to cause the snake-bites that I find in the tubes.
I'm using the stock Kenda whatever tires that came on the Kilo TT.
I can't imagine the upgrade to Gatorskins will address the pinchflat issue.
It would be nice to go for a ride and not have to worry about flats. The Hutchinson Tubeless tires, when used with Stans rim tape and sealant seem to get pretty rave reviews from the roadies.
Is there any reason NOT to go this route on a fixed gear commuter/townie/fitness bike?
