    Tubeless Nate on 100mm Flattops?

    Has anybody had success sealing a Nate on a 100mm Flattop? I have tried using the split 24" tube over closed-cell foam to build up the inside of the rim as previously described, with no success. The Nate does fit fairly loose on the Flattops; perhaps this is not possible. I would appreciate anybody elses experience.

    The inner profile and bead seat area of the Flat Top rims are not very well suited to a tubeless conversion.

    Even if you manage to get it to air up, you're not going to be able to ride it that way. Burpage and peelage will ensue quickly.

    Worst rim profile/size imaginable for tubeless/fatties.
