PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Stan's Tubeless Kit

In late 2000s, Stan's No Tubes developed a method of converting an existing mountain bike rim and tire to tubeless use. By removing the traditional tube and replacing it with a molded rubber rim strip to seal the spoke bed of the rim and a liquid tire sealant to seal the tire and prevent punctures, a whole world of opportunities was created.

  • Costs hundreds less than other dedicated tubeless systems
  • Reduces tire rolling resistance for more efficient pedaling
  • Improves traction, comfort and control of the bike
  • Allows for incredible puncture protection and reduced pinch flats
  • Can reduce rotating weight where it matters most, the outside of the wheel
  • Conversion kit includes: 2 molded rim strips with valves, 1 pint of Stan's sealant, 1 roll of universal kit tape, and detailed installation instructions

Need to run tubeless! - Aug 21, 2014

The kit might seem a little pricey but running tubeless is so worth it! Finally run your tires as low as you want (within reason). Easy to set up with everything you need included (minus the air compressor). The black rim strips can be reused but depending on how cooperative your rims and tires are, may require some cleaning and additional work after the first installation.

It works, and tubeless is obviously pretty nice. Good easy fix to save some component $$$ too. Good luck mounting any 2.25 ardents though.

This kit works. Tubeless rolls faster and smoother. Valve stems allow to top up without breaking the bead seal.

This is a cheap solution that will allow any rider to benefit from tubeless. I converted three bikes using this while I saved up for a nice set of wheels and highly recommend going this route if you want to save up for that nice wheel set you have always wanted.

Tubeless 29er - Apr 27, 2014

1 2 3 4 5
5 out of 5 stars
WILDWOOD, IL

I really didn't expect to feel much of a difference going tubeless, but I was wrong. I felt a lot more feed back from my tires (kenda nevegals) that I had previously. I also like the fact that it feels as if they absorb a bit more impact than tubes do. I smacked my back wheel so hard during a race this weekend that would have popped a tube, but the bead of the tire held so well under the impact. I even stopped to make sure I didn't have a complete blowout and couldn't believe it held so well. This kit was really simple to use and install, the only "negative" I would say is you'll probably need some sort of compressor to get the bead to seat properly. It's way too hard to do it with a hand pump.

Tubeless? -- Warning labels needed - Apr 25, 2014

After working on going tubeless for many many hours I came to the conclusion that all the money I spent for this kit, plus the core tool and the injector, I could have bought a bunch of tubes with the same money and spent a lot less time patching and changing them than I have trying to make this system work. I'll probably keep trying but I don't have a lot of hope for it

Not worth the money - Apr 23, 2014

I purchased this kit a when I first tried to go tubeless and...my results were less than stellar. Even with a dedicated tubeless tire, things didn't quite work out, and I put my blame in the rubber rim strips. The stan's sealant works great, and the bottle lasts a long time. I've set up about a half-dozen tires tubeless with the sealent given, including a few sealant refills after it dries out. (takes about 6 months in hot, dry so-cal) The yellow tape does its job well , and is easy to apply, but the rubber rims strips are really not good. Unless you have the rims listed on the packaging...chances are things are going to go badly. Save yourself the hassle and a bunch of money: buy presta-valve 24" or 20" BMX tubes (They do exist!) if you have 26" rims, or a regular 26" presta tube if you have a 29er, butterfly those open, and use that instead. Costs you 10 bucks and works far better. Buy the sealant on its own for cheaper.

Not that Stan's needs any single riders endorsement BUT...the No Tubes line works great. Most recent bike (mtn bike) came with tubed setup from factory. After getting flats in both front & rear tires the 1st weekend riding before having a chance to convert to tubeless... I immediately converted to tubeless and have had no issues since. The initials flats were caused by thorns poking through...and have had no air loss on any ride since.

Tubes be gone! - Aug 01, 2013

I have had the tubeless thought in my head for a while and all I can say is I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. No more stock piling tubes, slowing down my friends with the trail side tube change, and no more flats! The overall process was not difficult or time consuming considering.
