    Stan's Arch rims WITH tubes?

    Ok, so I'm still considering the tubeless vs. tubed conversion. I found a good deal on some Stan's wheels with Arches rims. Are there any challenges running tubed on that wheelset?

    Likely looking at some Specialized 2Bliss SWorks Purgatory and Captain tires, but not yet sure with Forte "light" tubes.

    No problem. I've used many NoTubes rims with tubes.

    correct, I used tubes in my Schwalbe RaRa and NN with my Arch 29' running tubeless.

    No problems with either

    Tubes will work fine, but I've also found that the Specialized 2Bliss tires work very well on the first generation BST (355, Arch, Flow) rims tubeless with zero hassle.
