As Trek dealers we have tried the Bontrager tubeless combo for a while and it works fine until you have to get the tyre off again. On the trail it's a nightmare, even breaking Park tyrelevers!! Getting a seal with a handpump can be impossible at times.
We have been using the Stan's conversion of late and can report that it's superb. We show customers how good Stan's is by having a demo wheel and tyre, puncturing it with a big screwdriver and watching it self-seal in seconds. Impressive.
When the time comes to remove the tyre, the liquid stays in the bottom of the tyre and if you're careful it's not messy.
It's the best tubeless system out there at present.
