    Older Race Lite Tubeless Compatible?
    I've got 2007 or 2008 Bonty Race Lites with the non-DT240 hubs.

    I'd like to give tubeless a whirl, so I'm wondering if they made kits for these rims.

    The standard Bontrager Rim Strips are available from a Trek LBS or online here.

    Two rim strips and valves and you should be set.

    i beat up on a set of them for a couple years and then threw some gorrilla tape on them with a presta cut from an old tube. they set up tubeless beautifully and probably faster and easier than my stans arch wheelsets with some of wadesters DIY mix. thats also with hutchinson airlight pythons (not the tubeless ready ones) too which arent known to be overly easy to set up.

    turned out to be a nice light combo for high speed smooth single track and rail trail. i dont know that i would take those tires into sharp rocks but again no issues with the rims at all.
