For every person who tells you how easy tubeless is, one will tell you what a pain-in-the-butt it is. Some tires seat easily with a floor pump, but some are difficult to seat with a compressor. Some punctures seal so quickly you don't even know they happened, and other punctures will cover everything with a gooey mess. So, give tubeless a try -- you may love it or you may hate it.
