    Origin8 80mm rim setup tubeless?

    Not asking "how to", just wondering if anyone has set one of these up tubeless yet.

    Put a set of Buds on these last night with tubes to help shape the tires and the bead seemed very loose. I'm going to give it a shot anyway but figured it was worth checking to see if this is uncharted territory for this rim, or if someone always has some "lessons learned" (ie: dont bother and just run tubes until I upgrade the wheelset )

    Just ordered a pair of these rims. I'm also interested in their capabilities.

    Can I ask you if the Buds mounted easily tubed?

    These look, smell, and act just like the Graceful Fat Sheba rims which were a rim I would NEVER try to make tubeless. Tires fit WAY too loose.

    These are made by weinmann and appear to be drilled HL80s

    I agree with this, I have had plenty on experience with the Sheba and these are the same. It was hard enough to get the tires centered on the rim without blowing off with a tube in em, I could never imagine trying tubeless.

    I have non drilled version of these. The drilled version is only 0.2 pounds lighter? Thought of trying tubeless on my non drilled ones but sounds like a no go

    I have drilled out the un-drilled Shebas with 1.5" hole and lost about 150g per rim if I remember right.

    Seems to be approx. what the manufacturer is getting between drilled and undrilled. Do you believe that 150+/- grams a rim is a noticeable or worthy while difference in terms of lightening up the wheel set?

    I actually looked back at my notes and I lost about 260g per rim with 1.5" holes so a little over 500g should be noticeable and look a hell of a lot cooler.

    Very cool! I would like to lighten up my wheel set. I have the solid 80mm rims and devist8er tires(not ultra lite versions) so I think I could greatly reduce my rotational weight.

    To repeat what a few others mentioned already..... tubeless is a no-go on these.

    And x2, its hard enough trying to get the tire concentric even with a tube in there. My wheelset came on a rolling frame build that I finished; ill hold out for tubeless until I build a nicer/lighter wheelset like I planned to do regardless.

    Update.
    The pair I just got from Bicycle Addiction (via Amazon) are 1012g and 1015g

    That's 152g/157g heavier than drilled Rolling Darryl, and $100 less.

    XT M756A on a Jenson price match. Couldn't afford much better for the rear but I reckon it will do the job.

    Front hub is Origin8 sealed QR fat front hub. Origin8 OR8 Fat Bike Front Hub > Components > Wheel Goods > Hubs | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    This will be my warm weather wheelset running either Origin8 Captiv-8er UL 3.5's or Larry front / Endo rear.
