    I know it's been done, but here I am, a shop mechanic, doing it. So it's official.

    Start with a Stan's valve and a brand new R-Sys -



    Throw in some Stan's tape for good measure -



    Mount tire, and voila -



    Finish off with some Hutchison FastAir (which really isn't as difficult to install as everyone made it out to be).

    (Yes, I realize the labels are off slightly. Didn't notice that until it was too freakin' late. Damn.)

    Pimp. I have a friend that rides for Notubes.com and he's been running tubeless on various road rims for a while. The crummy thing is that you have to use the tubeless tires or a strong wire bead tire
