I'm looking at building a new set of wheels and have narrowed the rim selection down to the WTB i23 and the Pacenti TL28. At this point I believe I understand the features of both, so I'm not looking for general recommendations or notes. What I am trying to figure out is what I have to do with either rim to run a tubeless set-up.
Is it as simple as buying a set of UST tires and mounting them with some sealant? Do I need tape / rim strips? Are there any tires that don't work? And are there any that "always" work? Is there any major difference between these two rims in this regard?
I apologize for what must seem like a basic question. I'm just a bit thrown off by the fact that neither of these rims seems to be a true UST rim ... they're both based on the UST concept and I'm trying to figure out what that means in the real world.
Thanks in advance.
