Wondering if anyone has any experience with "tubeless conversion kits".
I just got a N.O.S. Easton EA70 XC 26" wheelset from a friend that bought them new years ago as a spare set and only put a total of 28 miles on them before putting them into storage. He has a set of skinny Ritchey kevlar bead tires with tubes on them as he had them setup for hillclimb/XC racing and he said they weren't tubeless compatible. (No tubeless ready designation on rims, either).
I have Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.3 and Continental X King 2.4 tires that are able to run tubeless and I like so I was thinking about getting a tubeless conversion kit and trying to run them tubeless on the Eastons.
Anyone have any experience with this? Seems like a decent weight reduction for me IF it will work and be dependable / safe as the entire kit is less than $40!
Here's the kit I'm considering:
- The ultimate in tubeless conversion kits
- Three leading brands came together to provide the best products in one package
- Compatible with 26", 27.5" and 29" MTB wheelsets

- 1 bottle of Slime Pro tubeless sealant and measuring cup
- 1 Genuine Innovations inflation kit including tire lever, 2 tubeless valves, valve tool, 2 Co2 cartridges, push on presta adapter and a Co2 inflation head
Valve Length: 32mm Valve Core: Removable
