Thanks Keoloha and DSG for the replies. Excited to hear you can run sub 30 PSI without issues. I also had planned to carry a tube and tire patch kit with me just in case.
So last night I completed my DT Swiss Tubeless conversion on my 2010 Enduro Comp. I wouldn't say the conversion was any easy one, but its not hard as well, just a pain. The rubber strip that comes with the kit is pain in a$$ to the put on. My fingers are still numb from trying to stretch that thing around the rim. Secondly, I had a tough time trying to set the rear wheel beed. The stripe that gets added from the kit, creates a groove for the bead to sit in so when you start to pump the tire up, you sometimes will hear a pop from the bead seating, like a car tire. The instructions say not to use any soap and water to help the bead seat, but I was at the point where I didn't know what else to do, the bead didn't want to pop. After I used a little bit of soap and water though, the bead popped immediately and set.
With this kit, you can use a hand pump to inflate the tire. I used a floor pump and it worked just fine. Even after I let out all the air, the bead still sits snugly next to the rim. Not sure how Stans is or other kits, but this kit seems pretty legit, of course you pay the hefty price tag for it, but I didn't want to take any chances with the ghetto setups.
This morning I got up and the air was still holding in the tire. I plan on riding this weekend in Aliso Woods (California) down "Rock It" to really test it out, and the bike for that matter (will be my 3rd time riding it)
Why did I go tubeless? For one, I like running lower pressure and I'm tired of getting flats. I got 5 flats last month when I had my 2010 FSRxc. When I got this bike last Saturday, my first run on it I didn't bother to check the tire pressure assuming that the shop check it all before I took ownership of it. Wrong. After the the ride I got home to check out the bike and pressure was set to 25 front and back. My second ride I filled the tires up to 40psi and it just wasn't the same. I got a taste of the good stuff
So I am hoping with this conversion, I will be able to run somewhere around 35 PSI rear and 30 PSI front without getting anymore pinch flats.
Sorry to the OP for highjacking the thread. Hope this information helps though.
