The only time I really had a problem with flats was the year I spent living in Australia. It’s a weird country, even the flora is out to get you! So many pinhole punctures and the Stan’s really made a big difference. I’ve been riding tubeless ever since. The fat bike is the first non-tubeless I’ve ridden in a long time and I haven’t had any issues yet (knock on wood). For me, I just don’t want to be changing tubes in the cold. Anything I can do to minimize flats is on the table.
@shadowfox70 You might not have the cutouts, but the tech specs suggest you have a single-walled rim. You wouldn’t need the reinforced “bling strip” if you wanted to go tubeless, but you’d still need the latex strip to seal everything up. I’d be happy to help you out if you want to do the conversion. I have some extra tubeless valve stems already, too.
