I'm still trying to debate if I want a set of billet rims or stick with my spokes. I love spokes but I want to run tubeless. American Wire wheel makes tubless but not in a 21 inch rim that I need for the front. So I'm considering this sealing process they do to a set of spoked rims so I can keep the clean look of the spokes and run some tubeless tires. Might even upgrade to a cool set of American Wires with twisted spokes and have the process done to the front wheel?

Has anybody used Wheel Works of Garden Grove CA? I've read a couple of rag stories and they claim it really works. Man... I need some opinions and some feeback if anyone knows about this place. there was a thread here awhile back but it didn't answer all of the questions for me so maybe I can get some more info out of you guys? Any input, ideas, help... much appreciated!

a few things...

- last I hard from a local wheel shop was that WW was having about a 60% success rate sealing them. (don't know how true or how accurate... just regurgitating what I was told)

- what happens when you need to tighten your spokes?

- what's wrong with a tube?

What's wrong with a tube? Nothing until you pick up a nail.

My reason is....

I was looking for a way to fix a flat if I'm in the middle of BFE. Also was hoping to put a little more comfort in my head just in the event I ever have to experience a blow out one of these days.

I've searched all over the Vtwin forum and net to see if there are any new products on the market like Slime or similar that won't screw up the handling or balance. I'm open to any suggestions. Would like to keep my spokes and make the system as reliable as possible.

I wondered myself about spoke adjustment?

Thanks for the heads up Doctor.
