In the recent edition of 'cyclist' magazine theres a Q&A with Paul Lew of Reynolds wheels.
Talking about tubeless wheels he says " I've been running standard tyres as tubeless...." etc etc.
What I'm curious to know is has anyone ever tried it as well, and did it work okay? And could you run standard tyres on standard rims as tubeless rather than standard clinchers on tubeless specific rims, as mr Lew seems to be doing.
This year I bought a new frameset (Argon18 Radon) and a new groupset (105) but I'm still running my old wheels (OpenPro on 105 on the back and whatever the Bonty factory wheel was that came with my 2009 Trek 1.5 on the front).
The bike upgrade made a real difference to my performance as well as my enjoyment of riding. I also lost 6 stone in weight in 6 months, which probably contributed.
For next season I want to upgrade my wheelset. I'll have a maximum of £500 to spend before The Wife has my nuts and I'm after some advice on the best options.
For sale: Intrepid RC38 38mm aluminium clinchers.

The Reynolds Forty-Six wheelset is a deep section, carbon clincher package which comes with a premium price tag as standard. Sitting in direct competition to the Zipp 404 Firecrest, this price point is occupied by real wheel-tech big-hitters; open mould options need not apply. With plenty of features trickling down from Reynolds' own price-record-breaking RZR wheelset, the Forty Six is an attractive offer for the performance conscious.
