    Rim strip for tubeless setup!

    I tired to go tubeless by keeping the stock bike rim strip and using a layer of tape to seal it.
    It leaked air from the cutout holes as the rim strip is not adhesive to the rim and lets air leakfrom under it.

    Can I simply remove the rim strip and apply a round of tape directly to the rim ?
    Do I risk the tape to bulge from the cutout holes ?

    BTW, I see that you posted your same question in 3 spots. I'm deleting my response here and putting it in the Tubeless Tuesday thread, where it would more than suffice.
