Hmmm...good question, but really one for Shiggy. Below is a picture of the tire on a Dos Niner. The tire is mounted to an Open Pro rim - narrow, making the tire a touch taller than a wider rim. I have less that 3mm clearance with this rim and nanos on this bike, it is about 8mm with the fast track. Haven't measure the footprint but it looks and feels at least as wide as the nano, if not wider.

Stans

what rim strip with the open pros?
Yep, it's a Stans setup with a 29er rim strip. It was a biatch to get in that narrow rim - if I ever change it I'll definitely use a 26" strip. It would fit much better. I'm using a 26" strip in another 29er wheel (don't recall if it's a bonty or AC) and with the stretch it looked a little narrow for a normal MTB rim. It'd be perfect with the open pro.

How do the FT clear in mud? I have ridden mine a bunch this year but never in mud.
They don't look like they would clear well but they might be a surprise in the slop.

Keep us posted on your bead...

After having a full blast in the garage (next time full eye and HEARING (huh) protection) and finally a successful mounting. Only to completely fail without warning with great luck, on a short slow straight while waiting up for buddies after a wicked fast twistie down thru trees! It lasted about 10 days of riding with no hint of pending doom.
I am ever grateful to those "lucky" gods who graced me that day!
So now I'm a little gun shy but really love that tubeless ride and am waiting a couple of months for you to say "no failure yet" to gain my confidence to try again.
DAM! It worked soooo gooood on the 26er!

You're killing me!

Aw, man, that sounds rough but thank your lucky stars. What kind of tires exploded and what pressures were you running? If you tell me fast track at under 40 lbs they're coming off!

No not fast tracks

They were the bonti jones acx. I was running 30psi. However I could not resist and went out to the garage and set-up the REAR only FT to see how it goes. I go quite a bit slower downhill in the cooler months to keep wind chill down so we'll see how it goes!

I have a bunch of ACX's here, hardly used, no visible wear, never run tubeless, all with broken beads. Early series. Same as early series WTB folding Nano's. I have a fortune in these tires! Offer them for warranty?
