I currently have a 21" ordered. They are on back order here in Oz at the moment. Will report in when I have some time on it.

was recently reading an article about something like the faba kit and what was not explained was what are the advantages or going tubeless.

i know lower pressures can be run and that some people say there is weight savings, though if you think of all the muck a bike will pick up just for a weight saving, it hardly seems worth it

so ?

We should be getting our first Neutech shipment pretty soon...18s are on backorder, 19s are avail (I thought as well as a few 21s). This should be interesting...we signed up with Neutech a couple of weeks ago...looking forward to giving one of our sponsored riders a go with it...

Sorry, dont have info on the Faba easy kit

I think its not only the weight saving but also the lower friction betwin tyre and inner tube.Its nice patent necessary for factory riders....

The big feature I like about the tubliss concept if it works is proper rim locking. I always seem to be moving the tyre back around to avoid ripping the valve stem out. From what I can tell, even if the tyre does move, the valve stays put.

I think that the tubliss site summarises nicely the advantages, just got to prove them in the field. Dirt bikes seem to be one of the only machines that still use tubed tyres, tubeless have been the way to go for years on everything else.

so we can run 0 Psi if we want and not have the tyre spin and rip out the valve stem, awesome.

waiting for an 18 to run inside the Teraflex monster tyre, it needs very low pressures.

Tubliss should be great.
