Anyone running Tubliss?

Interested on how they hold up to the stresses off road riding.

the big weight reduction.
Having only ever had 1 pinch flat, I am game to try.
UHD tubes can cost a lot here!

As soon as the 19" comes available I'll buy one of them.
The ability to run lower tire pressures adds grip to the front that wasn't there before. I used to worry about the grip of the front tire in turns, now, the rear tire does all the slipping.

I can not see how this system could be different from the attributes of the mtb system.
In fact, the biggest misinformation about tubeless is that you can run lower pressures. That may be so, but what you want to do is run more psi than you'd use with a tube. The lack of tube equals a softer sidewall so you need to increase the psi for the increased air volume. Doing so means that the tubeless tire has the same traction with increased psi. A tubeless tire is more pliable than its tubed counterpart.
So instead of using less psi, I would use more since your sidewalls won't be quite as stiff. This is a good thing because the increase in air pressure will mean less chances of a dented rim.
Wow, I sound like a sales rep.

I talked to a guy near Phoenix that was actually running and testing an 18. He said the owner was waiting until some improvements were made before releasing the 18 and 21. Not sure what the problem was, but he lost air in the tube overnite. It aired up ok for the morning ride. I'm looking forward to them getting on the market.
