    yes (they will work on most rims/tires), on the 29er forum, stans yellow tape seems to work as well

    Let me see if I understand you.



    So what you are saying is the red shelf is where the bead of the tire sits when deflated, with the bead approximately located where the blue dots are, you then inflate the tire and the bead slides up the sides of the rim and hooks under the lip there where the green dots are?

    If this is the case why won't these Chinese rims work? It would seem that it might be harder to get a tire mounted but not impossible with a compressor and some soap right?

    I see, interesting. So for it to be UST or UST compatible it has to have those ramps and that shape for the bead? What if it's not UST but "tubeless compatible" like the enve rims?

    Thanks!

    I guess specs are kind of all over the place for now.

    This is what she told me yesterday.

    "The ERD will be at 537mm to 539mm, i still haven't got the finianl one from our engineer leader, they will inform us once the rims are ready to sell."

    I sure hope the rim profile comes out with the UST platforms/ramps built in. They are going to miss out on a lot of sales if they look like the earlier picture shown.

    Subscribing. Interested in the wide all mountain. In the 29er thread on the same topic, a guy was considering ordering a rim without the outer holes drilled to & use a magnet to pull nipples (with a steel threaded shaft fitted) through from the valve hole. This would make a well sealed tubeless rim.

    Per Nancy:

    "The rims are ready, the engineers are preparing the pictures and datas for this rim, then our website administrator will upload the pictures on our website.

    Thanks for your follow up. It can be finished soon."

    Excited to see what the end result came out to be.

    That's how Fulcrum (road wheels) does it on their 2 way fit road tubeless wheels.

    Stan's rims don't seem to miss out on too many sales.

    They do pretty well, but I won't buy them for that reason. When you buy a Notubes rim you expect to use std tires with sealant.

    I want a rim that I can mount UST or tubeless ready on without issue. The Notubes rims don't do nearly as well with ust tire beads

    I wonder what the weight limit is on the wide 25ers; I read somewhere that the "normal" 26ers had a 190lb weight limit.

    the 29er wide rims had a rider weight of 95kg (210lb), but could be built up with extra carbon for heavier riders
