Made for Rhythm Wheels!

PostedApril 7, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, designed specifically for rhythm tlr wheels
Easy to fit and cheaper than going down the Stan's 'flow' tubeless route if you have Bontrager Rhythm TLR rims. That said, used Stan's valves and sealant as had some to hand, Make sure you clean your rims well before using to ensure a good seal

great once you have the right version and valve!

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
These things make converting your Bontrager Rhythm TLR rims to tubeless a doddle.
words to the wise for you to take heed:
1. Ensure you have the correct version of the strip. if your rim bed is in the middle of the rim you need this Symmetric version NOT the Asymmetric even with disc brakes. remove your tyre and rim tape to check FIRST.
2. Do NOT get the Bontrager tubeless valves. they have a ridge/flange that doesn't allow the valve to be tightened fully and therefore does not form an good airtight seal against the strip; it almost works but poor valve design IMO. Get Stans UST valves or similar.
3. when installing, push the valve through the strip to align with the rim before clicking this into place. Once this is on, it doesn’t move so do it right.
4. I found the strip raised the bed too high and therefore too tight for some UST tyres (Nobby Nic Pacestar I’m looking at you) so you may need to follow the Stans process (yellow tape onto the rim, no strip) to mount the tyre tubeless.
