I started this in it's own thread because I thought it deserved it.

Now I'm thinking about wheels, some research that I did a while back but never followed through on. I'd narrowed down what I wanted to Fulcrum Racing 1 2-way fit and Campy Eurus 2-way fit. Anybody have experience with the tubeless? Is it worth the extra $$$ or is it just a gimmick to fill the gap between clinchers and tubulars?
And the Neutron Ultra's sound intriguing.

Tubeless for MTB or Road?

I assume ZZ means tubeless for the road. Personally I am not sure I want the potential problems. What happens with a glass cut with tubeless? At least with a normal tubed clincher you can put a boot in it and you are good to go.
If they were racing wheels then maybe it is a different answer but then why would you look at clinchers for a top racing wheel anyway when you can purchase tubulars quite cheaply on-line.
If you were looking towards racing wheels then you can't go passed the current tubulars simply due to the weight advantage they offer.
I have been racing on the Neutron Ultras (still saving for the Zipp tubulars
and they are a very good wheelset. Quite light for a clincher and seem plenty robust and quite stiff in a sprint. Plus the best thing they don't sqeal like those carbon wheels sometimes do.

I have some experience of tubeless for MTB but have given up on it, mainly because it needs a bir more maintenance.

I have no experience with tubeless, but after reading some of Lenard Zinn's comments have been intrigued with the concept. Besides the initial putting in of the sealant, what is the "a bit more maintenance" that they require??
