Now that makes sense.
This is exactly my point. It is totally fine to go tubeless because you want specific tire or just don't like tubes, but it has nothing to do with getting to the next level in weight, RR or range just because you throw the tubes away. Some tubeless people here try to make an impression switching tubeless made a great impact. Comparing to your old tire - may be. Comparing to same tire in tubed setup - no way.
just throwing the tubes away isn’t the point. like most things it’s a system, wheel, tape, sealant, tire. tubeless allows a softer, smoother, more supple tire at a lower pressure.
many, many high end e-bikes are marketed as tubeless ready. that they are sold with a tube and a particular type of tire has more to do with distribution and variation of preferences than disinterest in tubeless amount a wide range of cyclists. most high end bikes are also sold without pedals. does that mean people have no interest in pedaling them
