    Tubeless Rim-Non Tubeless Tire

    I have Mavic CrossMax rims (UST). Can I mount a non-tubeless tire (Maxxis Larsen TT) on this rim and not have to worry about it coming off the rim at speed?

    Would I have to put a Stans rim strip on?

    You will be fine.

    What version of crossmax do you have? sl, xl,

    from MAvics website.

    "COMPATIBILITY
    Cog: HG 8 and 9 speed
    Suggested tire: from 1,00 to 2,3
    UST Tubeless or regular tires with inner tubes
    With regular tires and inner tubes, do not use any rim tape"


    you could possibly try running a 'tubeless' setup with regular tireson the UST rims. Thats where a stans kit would be involved. I think if I was racing I would try that.
