    can you tubeless Bontrager Big Earl?

    Can I set up my Big Earl's Tubeless?

    I plan to use a stans kit. Should I use the DH or FR kit?

    Any experience setting these up tubeless? I plan to use UST tires.

    Thanks!

    Bontrager has rim strips that fit their rims for tubeless use. I don't know how well the stan's kit will work, as Bonti rims aren't like others. I will say that Bonti rims with the strips are the HARDEST wheel to get a bead to set evenly and correctly.

    Like MTB Pilot said Bontrager Big Earls can be made tubeless ready with the Bontrager tubeless rim strips and a sealant.

    You shouldn't have problems with Stan's either.
