@PedalWrench thanks for the insightful comment(s).
Re: the reduction in the half pound, you’re not only cutting weight in the tubes, but the rims as well. Our Runaway rim is roughly 425 grams whereas the Malice TCS rim is 325 grams. An average tube is 115 to 120 grams. That is 100g + 100g + 115g + 115g = 430 grams (454 grams to a pound) savings. Our 20 x 1.85 TCS Graffiti tire which is as wide as a popular 20x1.95 is only 430 grams. That is another 70 grams savings x 2. We can pull a pound off most if not all bikes with our system.
As a note the only thing we share in common with Stan’s is the sealant which we purchase from them and rebrand otherwise our systems may look similar but it is not.
In terms of burping air; if you try to run a ghetto tubeless system yes this will happen; however, with our system it will not. I encourage all to read the following link http://www.alienationbmx.com/tcs-tubeless-compatible-system
for more information on the program. It has an illustration of the internal rim tire-well which depicts the bead locking channels we’ve created to prevent this from happening.
Hope these comments help. During this soft launch we will continue to answer questions as well as expand on the information we put out. The program has some arms and legs and this is only the beginning.
