    tubeless question stan's for road risding

    The sell a cyclocross rimstrip for 700c wheels. Most people use it for low pressure cylcocross tires. can u use the rimstrip for high pressure road tires, or do you need to use the tape?

    i've always used the tape, can't remember the last time i installed a rubber strip. which of course means i have no idea if it will work or not, but i can tell you for sure the tape does. and very well.
    I work for some bike racers
    I've got some bikes, some guns,
    and a bunch of skateboards

    usually not needed, unless you have Mavic Open Pro rims.

    You'll just need the 2 layers of Stan's rim tape per wheel.

    Bontrager's tubeless conversion....uses a rim strip with a specially molded bead profile, which I suspect is UST... but I digress.
    2010 Specialized Secteur Elite with the RBR not-approved Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheelset
    2009 Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er upgraded to SRAM X9 with 1x10 and Stan's Arch EX rims and tubeless.
    2013 Cannondale CAADX-6 Tiagra with 9-speed SLX RD to run 11-32T cassette and Stan's Alpha 400 rims and tubeless
    and
    Some Burton snowboard setups, one with stiff ol' Camber and one with Rocker-Camber-Rocker
