Been using Stan's for about a year and it's great. A bit messy like saltyman says and you have to keep topping it up are about the only downsides. I've only ever had one flat that it didn't work on and that was a massive rip in the tyre.

do you need specific rims / tyres to go tubeless?

Impressive video, but it makes me wonder just how much sealant they put into the tyre.
The tiny bottle of stans sealant that came with my wheels wouldnt fix that many punctures :lol:

i run both types of tubeless.
the proper UST rim type, and the ghetto tubeless type.
i've not had a flat yet with either setup.

also i don't think there is anything in the info saying not to add more sealant.
i think those pre measured bottles are the minimum needed to get proper coverage/sealant properties.
