OK, so I haven't biked in 4-5 years because of knee injuries. Was told I could never bike again. Threw out MBAction and cancelled subscriptions. Had a wonderful knee surgery and just bought an awesome bike.

Now I need a tubeless wheelset. When I stopped reading the mags, Stans Notubes were all the rage. UST wheelsets were 800+.

What do I do? Convert my wheelset into a tubeless set via Stan's notubes? I don't want to spend more than 350 on a UST wheelset. I don't care about weight, I care about durability. I am a big fan of Sun RhynoLite rims.

Any suggestions?

Thanks : )

You could have a UST wheelset built within your budget if you look around. I would personally go UST if you want tubeless, as despite the lack of weight savings, it is (in theory) the most reliable setup.

Comptiger is correct about UST being the most reliable. You may want to check the classifieds on this site or eBay.

I rode Ghetto Tubeless for a while, and although I never had an issue (Bead pop, leaks, etc.), I didn't feel 100% confident with the GT system. I then purchased Maxxis tubeless rim strips ($5.00) and made my own homebrew sealant and rode this system with no issues, and 100% confidence. I'm now rolling UST.
