    why non tubless wheels on 2014 speafish 3?

    Im looking to possibly pull the trigger on buying a 2014 leftover spearfish 3....

    Come to find out the Sun Ringle' Inferno 25's are non tubeless wheels....

    why would Salsa run these wheels where most other compatible bikes i have been looking at all have tubeless ready wheels?

    This is not a deal breaker, as the price is killer... but was just wondering why?

    Most likely comes down to $. Are any of the other components 'better' than the competition? Can't any rim be converted to tubeless with rim strips, tubeless valve stems and some Stans? If so, probably not that big of a deal. I've always purchased UST grade rims, but know conversions are very popular.
