The Review
Not mechanically inclined -Got mine fixed at Hup Leong. Front non-tubeless tire racing ralph and rear crossmark. No rim tape required for the rear. Survive two long rides of 60km each -TGP11 and PCC at Kajang. Like a dream solution for a weightweenie to demands performance.

Strengths
-affordable at $80
- allow low pressure riding, ie 40 psi for me and thus greater riding comfort
-puncture free
-save

Weaknesses
- removable valve can accidentally be removed when releasing valve to pump air
-cant change tires easily(for obvious reasons)

" Allows greater range of air pressure! "

The Review
Yes, I been using it for more than 6 months. I am impressed by the seal formed by the Stan's tubeless rim tape and the tyre bead working together with the sealant. Seals minor cuts and punctures while on the trail. Go check out the video at Stan's website. Allows me to use skinny tyres 1.8 - 1.9 size and run lower pressures (30psi), great for Enduros with lots of slippery climbs, rocky climbs. It can be very time consuming to change the tyre or top-up the sealant because the seal is very good, don't expect to do that below 10mins per wheel. Again, usually sand gets logged in the rims when running low pressure, you have to take out the whole Stans tubeless rubber rim tape to clean it out, because it would be unwise to run it with abrasive sand rubbing your expensive tubless tape on the inside of the rim. I just wished it was more readily available and cheaper too. Hey be careful when running low tyre pressures with lightweight XC racing rims. Most of them get bashed and dented over the stones and rocks, however the seal still stays intact and allows you to finish the race.

Strengths
excellent bead seal, and sealant action. lightweight for XC when used with very light rims.

Weaknesses
1. Need to drill rims to enlarge the valve hole for the perfect fit. 2. Requires some skill to set up and install, like careful retaping of rim tape. Again for ease of tyre mount and inflation with a floor pump, you must get the correct thickness of the rim tape, because the width of the rims and the thickness of the rim tape, affects how the tubeless rubber tape sits in the rim. 3. Takes time to dismount the tyres, because the sealant really seals up the space between the tyre and rubber tape. 4. Fragile - Can't use metal tyre levers.
