I have a pair of the Galactik TLR 11 Storm tires at home waiting to be mounted up to a pair of Mavic's new UST rims (in addition to the stock Mavic tires). I'm on the road for a trade show this week but will try them out next week when I get home. I'm cautiously optimistic about this tire :)

WTB: TriRig Omega SV (not x). PM me if you have one :)

I've been running the Performance version of the Fusion 5 tubeless 11 Storms, rather than Galaktiks. I ordered them from StarBike in Germany for about $40 a piece.
This is my first go with tubeless, and holy crap, are they awesome! They're mounted on Boyd Altamonts, and I'm using 700x25's.
They're very comfortable (I run ~90 psi), and feel extremely smooth and fast. I have maybe 500 miles on them so far, and no visible signs of wear, and no flats. I'm using Hutchinson sealant.
They were very easy to mount, and sealed with a floor pump- after I had spun the wheels slowly and side to side to spread the sealant, then waited about half an hour to let the sealant get a bit tacky around the tire/rim bead interface.
So far, absolutely zero regrets.
Cheers,
John
