    ZTR Arch (29) conversion to tubeless


    I just got an off-the-shelf Salsa Spearfish (a screaming deal BTW) that came with stock ZTR Arch rims, tubes, and Conti X Kings as part of the package. The ZTR rims came with yellow tape, but no rim strip.

    I want to convert to tubeless but am not quite sure what I need. Stan's got a lot of awesome how-to videos on his site, but those usually show the more difficult conversions.

    Do I just need the valve stems? Or do I need the rim strips?

    Any experience with the Conti XKings going tubeless with ZTR rims and some sealant?

    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    All you should need is a set of valves and some sealant, maybe a compressor. No need for rim strips with the Stan's rims, just the tape. The X-Kings should setup fine tubeless.
