(I found a previous post on the subject, but it is from 2005, so wanted to get your current opinion on this. http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum ... light=stan)
Thanks in advance.
Yup, running the Hutch Piranhas with Stan's tape and sealant on Kinlin rims for my training/pit wheels with no issues. Usually run 30-35psi up front and 35-40psi in the rear (I'm 150lbs).Hunt-man wrote:So has anyone tried the Stans conversion kit for 700c cyclocross tires? I got some Hutchinson Bulldog tubeless ready tires so I'm thinking about a kit.
I also have a beater wheelset that I use for off season technical singletrack/MTB stuff that consists of Open Pros, Stan's Cross rim strips and sealant with a beefy 44c Mutanoraptor up front and 40c Speedmax in back - also with no issues.
Ah, I see. My race wheels are also Challenge tubular and I would not give them up for a tubeless setup. I do like the tubeless setup for training and as pit wheels but not for my primary racing set.marko wrote:My challenge set up is Tubular, so I can run the low pressure, my comment was that it saves me nothing to go tubeless.
I've ridden with 15psi on my cross bike and I weigh 158lbs. The rims were just glancing over the roots and they hooked up like mad! No burping at all.
I have Muds on one set of wheels and Jets on the other.
Just yesterday, I got a thorn in the front tire. A few drops of sealant squirted out until it sealed up. There was no noticeable pressure loss and I never skipped a beat on the ride.
That means more to me than the added weight. The wheels roll so well and the Michelin tires are real supple without tubes in them.

I've had pine needles and leaves get caught between the tire and the rim on hard cornering. Still, no burp. They really got it right with the shape of those rims. You can hear the snap of the tire when you set the bead. It's like a car tire.

A lot of these guys are shop mechanics who set this stuff up for a living so I dont think it is 100% user error. However, a hutch rolling might have helped me get the win this last weekend as it caused the pile up behind me
That is strange considering that I have had no problems using Hutchinson Bulldog tubeless on Ksyrium wheels with Stan's rim strip and liquid at 1.8 bar.
I did get a 1 cm cut in the tire on my third race (of course 20 meter after the depot) but it sealed enough after using one CO2 so I could finish the lap and change the wheel. It actually sealed so well that I could use the same tire in a race the week after.
