    Which is better on a tubeless Mavic Crossland rim set? Also, does it damage to any degree; the use of tubes on a tubless rim? Concern for bead integrity comes to mind. I just have a bunch of spare tubes and too busy to mess with a new product at the moment. A purchase of a compressor is on the shopping list as well (not that it is necessary). TIA :dancing:

    I use stans on my UST setup. Works great; not that expensive. I never have needed a compressor for mine either (Conti tires); floor pump works well enough. Using a tube should not damage the rim at all. Just make sure you avoid using tire irons if at all possible (could be tough on the trail).

    I use Stan's on a Kenda blue groove and Specialized Roll-X. The kenda was a little harder to seat, the Specialized went right on with a floor pump, both were the UST versions.

    I've been using regular tires and tubes on my UST rims for almost 2 years. No problems. I switch tires out fairly frequently, too. No problems there, either.

    Thanks to all for replies. Looks like I'm all set. I'll get the fattest rear that will go tubless on the Truth and will use the Panaracer 2.4 FR on the front (it is damn near acting like a tubeless now - dry).
