The thing I couldn't wrap my mind around with tubeless tires is what to do *when* (not *if*) they go flat out on the trail. Trying to install a spare tube in a tubeless tire that's probably bristling with thorns seemed like an unlikely workaround.
Then a friend and tubeless convert enlightened me. The reason a tubeless tire eventually goes flat is because it has run out of sealant. Assuming the tire isn't completely worn out, all you need to do is add more sealant. You don't need a spare tube - you need a small bottle of sealant. If your tire goes flat, simply unhook a small portion of one bead, pour a couple of ounces of sealant, rehook the bead, and pump the tire back up.
That convinced me, and I bought my first Stan's Notubes conversion kit along with a pair of UST tires. The system workes very well with a couple of caveats:
1) The tires need to be compatible with the sealant, which smells like it contains ammonia. I discovered that Kenda Nevegal UST tires were NOT compatible with the sealant, and eventually blistered and completely failed rather spectacularly on the roof rack of my car at the end of a ride. I switched to Panaracer Fire XC Pro UST, and have never had a problem with the sealant breaking the tire down. I have run four pair completely bald on two different bikes. I heard Kenda was going to offer tires that were compatible with the sealant, so I may revisit them since I really like the Nevegal pattern.
2) If you use a Silka brand brass air chuck to inflate your tires, realize it can put a lot of stress on the valve stem when you remove it. I pulled a valve stem right out of a Stan's Notubes rim strip when I removed the chuck after inflating a tire. On a related note, make sure you follow the installation structions and round the edge of the valve stem hole in the rim.

Used this with Mavic 317 rims and Panaracer Fire XC Pro tires - needed a shot of CO2 to get them to mount. Took longer than the directions said to seal, but if you repeat the bounce/lay on the side part - they will eventually seal and hold. I ride in North Texas - lots of Mesquite thorns and prickly pear cactus - no flats since installing - on my 2nd to last tubed ride I had 2 thorns in the rear tire...
Have since switched to Maxxis Ikon TR tires on same rims and loving it.
Get this! You NEED it!
PROS: Works As Advertised
