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.
Thanks-I totally agree and will not buy these tires anymore if I don't go tubeless, they are just to difficult to fix on the trail if needed. My LBS uses no special tools and it was worth every penny for them to replace them from what they told me it took two.

Do I really need the entire Stan's conversion kit? If I have the Trek Race Disc tubless ready rims and special fittings that came with it then don't I just need the liquid?
