I am going to try ghetto tubeless with pipe tape. I like the idea of Paul B's homebrew sealant I read on an older thread but I think he recommend 8 oz of his mix as opposed to 2 oz of stans (26" tires). I would like to keep it light and reduce future hardened latex to remove. What and how much of sealant are you guys using with good results? Thanks in advance, I am ready to get started!

I don't know what you mean by "Pipe tape", but I've had great success using:

1 part latex;
1 part tubeless slime;
2-3 parts Windex

I used to run Ghetto tubeless, and although I never had any issues, I never felt 100% confident with the system. I then purchased Maxxis tubeless rim strips, $5.00/each, made homebrew, and used this system with no issues, 100% confidence. I'm presently rolling UST with homebrew, which I believe is the best set-up, for me.
