I figured I will try it, but I also know that the LBS is probably counting on future sales of sealant.

I have been considering Jones h-bars as longer rides with flat bars usually result in my hands going numb. I can only imagine that this will be exacerbated by the wider bars of the Stache. Time will tell on that because I am not ready to dump that kind of $$$ on bars just yet and apparently people like them because I can't find any used ones for sale.
Have the shop set you up tubeless & just ride it for a while. The weak point on mine so far has been the rear hub. Grenaded it after a few months. Other than that, it has been great.
