Who needs tubes?
This is the quick 'n easy way to convert clincher rims to tubeless. The Stan's NoTubes Standard Tubeless Kit looks like one of those things invented in the garage by a guy with too much time on his hands. So what? Tinkerers have made the bike world so damned interesting, and there is a beauty associated with any garage solution — so utilitarian, so deceptively simple, so appropriately MTB.
This Standard Kit has everything needed to convert one 26in, cross-country wheelset to tubeless. It includes two molded rim strips with Presta valve cores, one pint of Stan's tire sealant with a 60-gram scoop and a spout, and one 10-yard roll of rim tape. Detailed instructions are also included; we recommend following them to the letter. If there's a concern about sealant, buy an extra quart now to recover from those initial screwups without sidelining the wheels and your hard work. The Stan's No Tubes Standard Tubeless Kit is compatible with most cross-country style 26-inch mountain bike rims.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Can't live without it. Industry standard at this point. I will never run tubes again. With tubeless you can run lower pressure and get that much more grip out of your tires. Don't be intimidated by installing them, but consider buying the Stans Injector or using something similar.
