The last set of wheels I had built for my CAAD are Stan's Alpha Pro rims. I want to run them tubeless, but have just not found a true tubeless road tire I like. The Hutchinson Atoms are 300g each... without adding the sealant. My Conti GP4000 all seasons with latex tubes are only 240g each. I'm not adding almost a half pound in rotating weight to try tubeless just yet. On my mountain bike, I don't care as much about that weight but it makes a discernible difference on the road bike.
