Hey everyone,

I just purchased 2 26x2.3 Hutchinson Python Air Light Tires http://www.pricepoint.com/detail.htm?stylepkey=14287, and was wondering about going tubeless. While these are not tubless made tires, I was wondering if I should try going ghetto tubless with them. I have a few extra tubes and have nothing to lose, but I was just making sure that it wouldn't be a total lost cause.

Thanks guys

Stan's website states the New Generation Python Air Lights should not be used tubeless because the bead isn't strong enough. The older style Air Lights were fine, as I have mounted up many ghetto tubeless w/ no problems.

Alright, thanks. I'll just run the old tubes then. But one more question. I'm going from a 1.95 tire to the 2.3 tire, will I need larger tubes or will my current ones work fine?

Thanks
