No rim strips on my Zonda's either, and nothing at the valve hole. No issues for two years of riding, well in excess of 8000km. Love my Zondas, although the manual said rider weight limit was somewhere around 170lb... I just managed to squeak under 175 this year, but i'm not telling my rims that.

The bigger question in my mind is, why aren't these wheels good for going tubeless? Campagnolo says no, but their construction seems to suggest they'd be fine... The only hole is the valve stem, wouldn't a TL tire seal really well if you installed a TL valve?
