    New question here. DT Swiss xrc 300+ Rochet Ron+ Stan's Notubes

    I’m trying to convert my tube set of wheels to tubeless.

    As I was recommended I’ve bought the Standard 26” or 24” (21.5-24.5 mm) Stan's NoTubes Kit.
    The instructions/videos recommend to leave the original rim tape ( Ritchey Snap on Rim Tape) I did so and installed the rim strip over it.
    For the most, the rim strip seats down under the rims bid-lock and leaves a nice space for the bid lock to grasp under the rim's bid lock, but at the area of the valve stem the rim strip is flushed with the rim's bid-lock not allowing the bid to reach between the rim and the rim strip,
    Is this o.k?
    Anyone tried this combination? Any recommendations?

    Thank you in advance,
    Adi.

    Hi culturesponge,
    Thank you very much for your detailed answer!!
    I understand you do not use rim strip at all…but only the yellow tape.
    Did you tried to mount it with the rim strip? Currently we do not have Hutchinson dealer here...Could I just seal it with Stan’s tubeless sealant?

    Did you drill out the valve hole like the instructions tell you to? If you didn't, the valve on the rimstrip won't go in far enough for the edges of the strip to clear the hooks of the rim.

    Don't ask me how I know this...

    Because the carbon rim were made in a cast, there are still some residues of cast releasing red substance glued to the inside part of the rim…its not as nice and shining external part.
    Carbon does not like to be sanded…it takes the resin out of the fibers and causes the material to deteriorate.
    I'm considering using Scotch Filament Tape 898 instead of the yellow tape... It’s a clear polypropylene backing reinforced with glass yarn filaments with a very strong synthetic rubber resin adhesive... I played with it in a local 3M dealer, it resisted very well my stretches, Curved nicely and it looked as the rubber resin blocks better leaks.

    It seams that someone already thought about it...
