Lately it has developed into the "how to patch a tubeless tyre" thread.
The all point of tubeless tyres is that you shouldn't have to worry about any of that... but if that becomes the main topic of discussion, then maybe something is not quite right
Agree with you on cost - they do seem to be significantly more expensive still. Availability is improving, but there are still an awful lot of bike shops that look at you blankly when they get a question about road tubeless tyres..........
Ease of use (fitting, adding sealant etc etc), is still a big stumbling block and until it is improved they won't gain acceptance from a sizeable proportion of road cyclists.
