People boring on about how wonderful it is
I had a puncture the other week (a rare experience) and I was trying to listen for where the hole was and along came two mountain bikers who spent 5 minutes telling me why I should be using tubeless. What I really needed was some peace to fix my problem not why I needed to change my good wheels and tyres!
I'm not sure that even qualifies as moral support; maybe you can shut them up by reminding them of the messy business installing the things and the constant 'topping up' required.
You forget the sealant sticking itself like glue (because that's what it is) to frame, wheels, and so on, when you puncture.
So you save time (?) fixing the puncture, but then you have muck all over everything which is extremely time-consuming to remove.
So then there's another product to get that off
