    Older Bontrager Race Lites, Tubeless ready???

    Looking for some input regarding tubeless use on an older set of Bontrager Race Lites wheel. These are the Hugi 240, 24/28 revolution, asymetric ceramic rim version prior to being sold as the Tubeless Ready version.

    Are these rims compatible with the current asymetric Bontrager rim strips and valves, I would be using sealant???

    Are the beads on these rims any different than the current bontager rims??

    I would like to set these up in some tubeless form as a race only wheelset. I realize the debate on tubeless tires vs. non-tubeless with sealant. Does the tighter tire fit of the bontrager rims lend itself to better compatibility with traditional tires. Ideally I would like to run IRC Mythos standard tires with sealant for the weight savings. The new Bontrager sealant ready tires are intresting.
    Anyone have any experience with this rim/tire combo???
    Any input appreciated

    I tossed the rimstrip on my older race disc rims and it did hold up. The front wheel did anyways the back I had problems. The rimstrip fit in the rim but then it didnt fit in their properly like it did to the front wheel.
