    No reason it shouldn't.

    Without having flat UST compatible bead shoulders, the inside shape of this rim would be poor for a Stan's or other brand name tubeless conversion rimstrip. Any sidewall deflection such as from hard cornering or a rock pinch could easily burp air. However, with this rim a "ghetto" rim-strip (a split 24" inner-tube) will work OK, and the "ghetto" rimstrip is the best sealing and burp resistant rimstrip to use when converting clincher bead tires to tubeless with any rim.

    Thats a great article derby...exactly what I'm looking for. Will try it at some stage using a homemade mix. Tires on there way now so should be up and running in a week or two.

    Thanks again
