Stans w/cross tiresjm3

Has anyone tried going the notubes route w/cross tires? I realize there are no rim strips available, but has anyone used the home-brew/ghetto version? Seems like it would be great so I know it can't be an original thought. Is there a reason it wouldn't work?

I haven't tried it (I really like Stan's on my MTB -- even though I did have a hole that wouldn't seal last ride and had to bum a tube off a buddy...) but did notice that he's now offering rimstrips for 29'er mountain bikes, so it may not take much cobbling together to make it work.

I'd send them an e-mail, asking if they've got any experience with anyone using the system for low-pressure 'cross tires.

Of course, the easiest route -- and probably cheapest -- if you wanted tubeless benefits on clincher rims would be to go with the Tufo Tubular Clinchers. Same benefits as going with the Stan's system, with MUCH less mess and fuss.
