    Better than tube-full tires?

    @Scott: I'd say "different". When I got two flats on the TT, I started thinking about tubeless because apparently they get less flats. Then I destroyed my back rim on a pothole recently, so the opportunity presented itself.

    No more pinch-flats, as I understand it. Maybe a few grams lighter? I've been told this matters especially for rolling weight. Makes sense. More/less supple? More/less grip? Or do those two things range similarly, based on the type of tread, regardless of tune or tubeless ?

    @Scott: see my comments on the ride ;)

    oh, actually pay attention to details already there? what a novel concept. Thanks.
