Has anyone used the new tubeless ready tires? In particular I'm thinking of the new Bontrager Super X TLR with Bontragers Super Juice. Also, what about the Python Tubeless Ready? Has anyone used those with Super Juice?

I used the 1st series of Python TR prototyre 1 year ago with success.
Now I have a Python TR on the rear which weight 562g :thumbsup: if you add 60g of sealant you have a very competitive set with great puncture resistance.

Is the 562 with or without sealant? Also, what type of sealant are you using?

I have a set of the Bontrager Revolt Super X tubeless ready and they have worked great for me. I use them only for racing. They each weigh about 540g and I use about 1.5 scoops of Stan's in each... probably more than enough. They sealed up immediately and never leaked down that I can recall. Overall I like them a lot and will be looking to buy more tires like this for all-around riding... maybe the Jones XR or ACX.

I'm curious as to why you didn't use Bontrager's Super Juice product and went with Stan's?

I used Stan's because that's what I had. The tires actually came with a new set of Race X Lite wheels that I bought from someone on the mtbr classifieds. I happened to already have a jug of Stan's sealant that I used in some standard tires. I would certainly consider trying the Superjuice, but haven't had the need yet. Also, the Bontrager stuff can only be purchased from a Trek/Bontrager LBS which is a bunch of horsesh!t if you asked me. Most of them have no inventory of TR tires and I certainly wouldn't expect them to have Superjuice. On the other hand, I can walk into other LBS's and pick up a jug of Stan's... so most likely that's what I'll buy again.

Slightly OT: BTW, I also have tried Stan's mixed with Tubeless Slime (because I was down to my last scoop of Stan's) and I've tried Tubeless Slime thinned a bit with water... the Stan's mix worked "ok", but the straight thinned Slime isn't so good imho. The Slime never dries once it seeps through a hole and therefore it can wash off easily and start leaking again... plus, it attracts dust... just a plain ol' mess.

Thanks for the great info. After polling every LBS in the Denver Metro Area, and finding no one that had the TLRs in stock, I had to order them (along with the juice). With any luck I'll get them b/f the weekend!!
