Turnagain Rims Tubeless??????
I just got my new Borealis and since they don't have the Carbondale rims, they gave me these Turnagain rims. I can't say I'm a happy camper as watching Flynn put a set of Bud and Lou tires on the Carbondale rims for a friend of mine is what convinced me to get a new bike.
The question, has anyone been successful at going tubeless on these rims?
And if so, what method did you succeed with?
I'm wondering if anyone has successfully set these up tubeless also and how they did it.
1) Secure the rimstrip (we use 12 gram Tyvek strips instead of 80g standard rimstrips) to the rim with tape.

3) 5 or 6 loops of Gladpack or similar plastic wrap.
4) Install tire and pour in some Stan's solution
5)Pull the sidewalls outwards onto the foam tape.
6)Inflate with any pump you have handy, like a mini pump.
7) Trim off excess plastic.
This method makes for easier tubeless setup than on my tubeless ready carbon rims.
This was helpful.
I did a variation of this and after few attempts it did work. Usually I wouldn't bother to try and get a rim with no bead lock to work, but the goat heads in my area are really terrible.
Inflating the tires with this setup on our 103mm rims is way easier than on my tubeless ready bead lock type 80mm carbon rims, as it easily inflates with a minipump out on the trail, while the bead lock type requires a burst of air in order for the bead to pop into place on the carbon rims-
