    Tubless - WTB Dual Duty FR 29???

    Has anyone converted this rim? Looking at the Stan's site I see:

    "WTB Dual Duty XC 700c 29er V brake rim

    Plus Four

    This rim has an extremely large rectangle drop channel in the center of the rim. Remove existing rim strip, use two layers of my 12mm spoke tape over the spoke holes. Then apply one layer of foam weatherseal 3/8 inch wide X 3/16 inch thick in this drop channel. Then install Plus Four rim strip. (Use Frost King foam weatherseal Gray item # V443 $2.00 for a 17' roll)"

    But that's not the exact rim I'm talking about. That's the same instruction they give for the laser disc rim as well. Not sure if it will work the same on the rim in question as the "FR" Dual Duty is the widest of the WTB 29'er hoops at 28mm.

    If anyone has any experience with this rim and tubeless set ups let me know. Thanks.
