28mm Schwalbe Pro One Tubeless on my Giant TCR - nice!

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

What if you have a massive bead leak on a rim that uses no tape (due to no spoke holes)?

Sure. But that's typically too hard and is neither fast nor comfortable and not how I'd set it up. But, you're right - if you want to pump your tires up hard then you gain nothing by going tubeless.

Faulty tire or faulty rim?

So 55/65psi is hard for a 28mm tyre (70kg rider)?
I wouldn't of thought so.
Under that pressure starts to not feel good for hard cornering and sprinting.

That’s interesting. I weigh considerably more than do you and I ride at 66/70Psi and thought that might be a bit high and was going to drop it 5% or so. I also found a noticeable difference with tubes. Rode like a truck with tubes and very supple and connected without.
