I've got a Mavic Crossland UST compatible rim. I don't plan on ever running tubeless tires. I tried fitting a 1.5" tubed tire on the rim and it doesn't want to cooperate. I'm thinking if I remove that hard plastic UST compatible rim strip in there I'll probably damage the rim strip but life will be easier installing tubed tires. I also want to make sure I'll have no problems in the field should I ever get a flat with my tubed tires.
So; will removing the strip be a solution for me? Are there any other solutions?
