Tubeless wheels and tires

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Tubeless wheels and tires

Who here is riding tubeless? What have your experiences been and what wheelset are you riding? I picked up my Cervélo RS yesterday and went with the Fulcrum Racing 1 tubeless. I am just curious of what others think running tubeless over a tube?

Same thing I said in the other topic.

"Do a search for "road tubeless." Much in the archives.

I use road tubeless and love it."

Some like it, some don't. Basic info is pretty much the same as what has been previously written.

I am using Stan's Tubeless conversion kits on a pair of Neuvation wheels with Hutchinson Intensive tires. The conversion was super easy, and the tires have held up superbly through the winter. I have put almost 2000 miles on the tires, with no flats. Most likely I will need to replace the tires before a flat ever occurs.

Edit: In winters past, with the same amount of riding I had at least 2-3 flats on Conti GP4000 or Gatorskins.
