I want to turn either my Mavic Ksyrium SSC SL or ES Anniversary Edition wheelset into a tubeless ride. I have read Lenard Zinn arguing against using regular clincher rims for tubeless set-ups, because tubeless-specific rims have a different kind of rim lip design that is meant to lock with tubeless tire beads. I am kind of eager to do the conversion, so I called Mavic Technical department yesterday, and the gentleman I talked to said not to do it. He has seen it done, but says there are potential problems with blowouts due to the inherent weakness at the rim lip/tire bead juncture.
Anybody done/doing this without issue(s)? The tire I plan on using, if I go ahead, are the Schwalbe Ultremo ZX.
Thanks for all responses.
