    Are you still running your custom tubeless method?

    Not yet, I am not sure what tires I am going to end up with. Once I do, then ya, Ill go tubeless. My main bike has been setup tubeless that way for years now with no issues at all.

    Well, I got it done enough last night to throw a leg over it and take a ride. Its a decent ride. I need to dial in the rear shock and possibly reduce the front travel back to stock because the front is so tall. But so far I'm happy....

    I had to steal a few parts from my other Beast, so Ill give it a couple rides and if I like it, ill spend some money on some new parts. Right now its 49.3 pounds which I think is still lighter than a stock new beast...
