    Advice on new wheel set

    I have narrowed my choice of rims down to 2 of Mavic's.

    The deciding factor will be whether I use Stan's kit to run tubeless on non UST rims or I get a set of UST rims ?

    The non UST rims are a little lighter and more importantly (for me) cheaper and I cannot see any advantage of UST rims over using Stan's kit except the hassle of sealing the holes at the set up stage.
    I Would use sealant on both set up's so that's not a factor..

    Any views ?

    I have always chosen to go with standard rims and Stan's. I have all three of my wheelsets set up using Stan's and I couldn't be more satisfied. The only hassle is changing tires and since I don't do that more than three times a year (per wheelset) it isn't too much of a hassle. I can change both tires in around 15 minutes.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Couldn't find this in a search - what is Stan's kit?

    Stan's No Tubes. It converts non-tubeless rims and tires into tubeless.
