What pressures do you run? Anything under 30psi in the rear up here in the PNW where the dank dirt and bermed trails = massive G's resulting in burped or tire blown right off the rim. I have been running tubeless off and on since tubeleess was invented. Last year I ran with tubeless on my am bike with Stan's ex Flows and 2.35 Schwalbes. If the dirt was good I was running 33#, which is a compromise traction wise.

I as a novice Mechanic find changing tires with the Tubliss system to be in fact easier for me, I follow the tubliss install method verbatim though. I could see mounting up a tubliss setup being harder for a seasoned moto mechanic since they have already developed a good technique for changing conventional tube/tires. Personally I have popped two of the inner high pressure rim lock tubes on the tubliss setup on my moto (running about 8 psi with a Maxxis Desert IT 18" 120) and dented up the rim as well, but I could never fathom running that low of a pressure in a tubed setup where I ride. All in all I think this will be a big step forward in terms of traction for mtbing.
