Currently working on another build so not running anything per se, but yes, I was running the BJ's tubeless with no issues.

The bike is incredible. From the first couple hundred feet on the road you can instantly feel the smoothness but yet no loss of power when cranking along at 20+ mph. The bike and the setup doesn't give up anything transitioning from road to mixed surface. I can easily see this one handling all duties with aplomb.


On fatter tires. I always try to stuff as fat a tire as possible on bikes to make them more versatile, but like the scientist said at what point is too much cushion and balloon action???
I am heading to NAHBS and I am curious if bikes will be sporting 48s or 35s...
