Nope. You can still get flats.

not really, just squirt some latex mix in the tire and pump it up.

No. Tubeless tires mean you have tires with no tubes in them.

Really cheap too unless you're in London or something.

I stick a tube in it on the trail. I can then fix at my leisure, at
home, with a microbrew.


I tried that but it just fizzed out the hole and let all the air back out.

Who told you that. 1st came tubeless car tires. Then
motorcycles. Then MTB. Now road bikes give it to Mavic and
Michelin. TDF this year is the test. Trust you better put a tube in
that tire.
