I spent the summer riding on a tubeless rear 17" and a tubed front 21" that Woody's made up for me. (I have no issues swapping out a front tube, it was always the back that ticked me off.) I had 3 rear flats and one front flat. Man, when you blow that front out at 50+ mph, it's a hell of a ride I tell you... I think the biggest plus of a front tubeless would be the slower deflation, so you can have a bit of a buffer to get yourself slowed down. I'm trying out duct tape for a rim band to see if it helps in the future. (Always help up fine on the dirtbikes.) I'd be happy to never have a front flat at speed again though, knock on wood!
