Pro Racer Macky Franklin shows us how to setup tubeless with a Floor pump
Tubeless rocks! Especially tubeless with sealant. Not only does it get rid of annoying flats like goat heads, glass, and small rocks, but it allows you to run lower tire pressures without risking pinch flats. Personally, I run WTB TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) tires (26 PSI front, 28 PSI rear), but as long as you're using sealant, you can run most tubeless ready tires tubeless if you have tubeless-compatible wheels. My one issue with tubeless used to be installing the tires.
