I use tubeless on my mountain bike, but not on my commuter. In my opinion, it is too much of a hassle having to worry about sealant every ~6 moths for me to consider it on my commuter that rarely gets flats. I have also heard of issues at higher PSI not sealing the puncture fast enough so the tire looses too much air and has to be topped off. This is not a problem with my mountain bike running at a low PSI.

It is recommended you still carry flat repair supplies with tubeless. I always carry 1 tube with my mountain bike and will carry 2 tubes if I am going on a long ride and expect to be alone.
