Either way be sure to have a spare along. Aaaand the tools and know how to change it while sitting in BFE. I've never had much trouble on my lightweight 250. My last 650 was cursed I wish all bikes would go tubeless. Taking a small 12v electric pump is a godsend as well. Believe mine is Slime brand. Enjoy CO. My experiences there in Aug are that you need to be ready for potentially cold high altitude weather. Even in Aug! Have fun.
