Notubes Tubeless Road Tires


Just built up a really nice set of custom built wheels and decided to use the Stans Notubes with Hutchinson tubeless Fusion 2 700x23c tires. I have to say this setup seems pretty nice. All you need to do is tape the rims with Stans Tape, put in a valve stem, install the Hutchinson Tires, soap and water it, then put in the sealant. Everything works as advertised, even with a floor pump! This is a great alternative to buying dedicated tubeless wheels, and you can always switch back to normal road tires and tubes at any time. So far the ride is great at 85psi. Check back for updates on the long term use of the tires & wheels.
