    2018 specialized pitch tubeless conversion

    What is the best way to convert? Do I just need rim tape and a stans valve? Or do I need to but the rubber strip with the valve attached?

    Like said above. Other than that just look a few youtube videos about it before you do anything.

    I'm not familiar with those rims/tires.

    Wire bead tires - are they tubeless compatible (says 2bliss on the side)? If not, they'll need more sealant or may not work at all. Others may have experience with your particular tire. If the tire doesn't work well, you may want to wait until they're worn out before converting.

    See how tight the tire bead fits when it's deflated first. If it's loose you'll want the gorilla tape to help it fit tighter. Otherwise, any of the tubeless tapes in the correct width (add 2-3mm to the inner width of the rim) should work.

    +1 for watching several vids to get the idea of how to do it first BEFORE you start. It's easy to overlook something simple and get frustrated when you're new to tubeless.
