    Going tubeless on stock wheels

    Any tips to converting the stock WTB Laser Disk trail rims on the Flight Monocog 29er to tubeless? I already have the Stan's sealer but am wondering what needs to be done for tape.

    I am looking to do the same to mine.

    You'll need a rim strip w/ valve if you want to do it the traditional way. Or you could experiment and get a stan's olympic valve and just cover the spoke holes with spoke tape.

    Let me know how it goes.

    I used the Stan's 29er kit that they recomend for this rim. I had to lay in some weatherstrip as they suggested. I completed my conversion about 4 months ago, have probably 40 hrs of hard riding with no flats or burps.

    I'll be doing the same this weekend, however going 'ghetto-tubeless' by cutting 24" tubes in half and using those as rim strips. I've had luck with the same approach on my trail bike (using 20" tubes). I'll let you know how it goes, just debating between using Stan's sealant or cooking up a home brew...
