    Tubeless Rimstrips for Bontrager Race X-Lite Wheels

    On the Bontrager Race X-Liter 29er rim are both rimstrips asymetrical or is the front symetrical and the rear asymetrical?

    Apparently on the 26" version of this wheel they are two different rimstrips.

    I have the 26" Race X Lites and the rims and rim strips are the same for front and rear... both are asymetrical on mine.
    I read that on the internet.

    I hear ya... I just have been using a ghetto system and it has worked without any problems... The other day the tire made a noise that sounded like it pinched and slid off the side of a rock - and I thought for sure it would burp - but it was fine ...

    I've forgotten about the fact that I'm waiting on the Rhythm/Duster tubeless rim strips except for the reminders I see here...
