"Highly recommend the Industry 9 i25 TL wheelset. It is a clincher or tubeless alloy wheelset built with their 23mm wide proprietary rims, sealed hubs, and bladed spokes. I am in the 160-165 range and have used them for hard road miles this year in…"

"I ran Vittoria XG TNTs on A23 rims all last season with no issues. I used a strip of gorilla tape to seal the holes and dumped in a standard serving of Stan's sealant and, even on the non-tubeless version of the A23 rim, didn't burp air or…"

"The ONLY combo I have had luck with is Iron Cross (Stan's) rims and a selection of tires.  The Kenda's work great - I like the Kwicker - and some Bontragers do too.  The Iron Cross work better than the Alpha's.  I have…"

"I've had success with the PDX/A23 combo with 2 layers of Stan's tape. Started doing a few CX trail rides, so I'm actually using a Kenda Small Block 8 tubeless in the back so that I don't wear out my rear PDX. I weigh about 190…"

"I have found that wider rims are better for preventing burping.  I ran clement pdx on stans crest rims down to 24psi @175# last season and didnt have any issues racing cross.  I ride them on single track some too for training and did…"

"To run the Alpha 400 with tubeless specific cross tires are people also running yellow tape and the rim strip? I really want to go to a tubeless setup, but there is so much negative information and very little postive, it makes me step back each…"

"I switched from tubulars to tubeless very much on purpose and currently have no desire to move back.  The consistent refrain I'm hearing is that if you use tubeless tires matched to tubeless rims, it's fantastic.  When you try to…"

"The rim strip didn't become available until after we had added all the tape.  I should request one just to see how it worked compared to the tape."

"Kit, you know notubes has a free rim strip for those wheels?  they were designed to try to do road and cx, but it's hard to do high pressure and low pressure well, so the rim strip helps with the low pressure situation. "

"there's a lot of content on Cyclocross Magazine's site including a three-part series, with another long-overdue installment coming, but it really depends on: 1) whether you want to use existing wheels or plan to buy a tubless-ready…"

"Last year after cutting a tubular I changed over to the Bontrager Race TLR wheelset setup with the Vittoria TNT cross tires with Stan's sealant. I weighed around 175 and was running sub 30 with no issues. I'll be doing the same this year…"

"I've written up some long-form thoughts on my blog. In a nutshell though, I've ran the NoTubes Alpha 400 rims and mainly some Clement PDX clinchers tubeless last year.  It worked okay, running about 28 or 29 psi at 175 pounds myself.…"
