I want to go tubeless but what do i need? my bike has alex dp17 rims and kenda komodo 2.1's on. What do i need or change as i have a phobia about puntures and i am currently weighing in at 16.3 stone and i woory my weight might add to the problem and before you ask i do make sure my tyres are as hard as stuart pearce's thighs :?

    Depends, you can either buy a tbeless kit like joes or stans or you can go ghetto using a 20" tube or the gaffa tape and valve method, both covered on you tube. I used the gaffa tape method with bontrager mudx tubeless ready tyres and it worked a treat

    If you have a phobia about punctures then going tubeless won't cure it, you can still get flats with a tubeless set up (either plug the hole or put a tube in if it happens and doesn't seal), main benefit is you can run lower tyre pressures and will eliminate pinch flats.
