    Tube in a tubless tire OK?
    I have no experience with tubeless set-ups, so sorry for this basic question. Is it OK to run a tube in a tubeless tire? I am setting up a hard tail mountain bike for gravel trail (rail trail) riding. I have been looking at tire options (650B), and most of tires that seem good for this purpose, are tubeless. I just want to make sure I am not doing something wrong by staying with a system that I know, and works for me. I will also use this bike as a general purpose commuter, so it will spend some time on pavement.

    Absolutely ok. Most people running tubeless carry a spare tube in case they get a flat on the road.
    Many people don't want to deal with sealant and run their tubeless with tubes. It's pretty common.
