Road tubeless has arrived!!!

I noticed this over a year ago, then wrote it about 6 months ago. With the recent release of the new Pirelli Cinturato Velo that blows the Gatorskin out of the water, and the pending test results of the new Continental GP5000, I thought it was time to put this out there.

    Good to know that they are available in lots of sizes. I still run 650c on my Ti Aero. I assume there is a rim tape like Stan’s makes for mtb rims that will make any rim tubeless ready.
    I’ve been tubeless for years on my 29’r mountain bike.

    Very much in agreement, Larry.  Thanks Jim.

    I picked up a Trek Fuel EX 9.8 29er for a few months, but my back could not handle it. It was tubeless too, 30psi, carbon rims. Amazing bike compared to the Y-33 I sold in 2000. If only...
     
    Pick up a Pelso. Its only 1/2" higher than an Aero and there are soooo many more tire choices in 700c. Better weight distribution too. 
     
    Yes, lots of different width rim tapes.

    The key to saving my back while MTBing is to run 18 psi at most on wide Ibis rims and 2.35 tires. Also proper shock and fork setup. I had back surgery 8 years ago and am primarily a mtb’r. But during the warm weather months, my Ti Aero is my go to bike b

    Jeremy (Bacchetta) suggested that Bacchetta will be checking to see if the Pelso can accommodate 650c's sometime in December.

    I think the biggest takeaway from this is that if you want the best combination of speed and puncture resistance from a new tire, buy a tubeless tire, even if you are going to use tubes. 

    ...and that Gatorskin lovers now have a faster and more puncture proof option.

    I was on a gravel ride a few weeks ago and one of the guys got a flat that wouldn't seal.  He had a set of plugs, popped one in and it worked like a charm.

    Cool! There are more and more simple ways of dealing with punctures that sealant will not plug.
