This can be a great news for me...
I mean - there is ridge as I can see typical for tubeless?
Here is tubeless rim - typical, I saw same on Caponord

Compare...
Rear rim has the raised "lips". Front 21" does not (when I pulled my frt. tire off they were not as pronounced).

I still run a tube in my front and have had the pleasure of fixing a front tire puncture roadside (what a PITA).

I did the rear wheel due to the fact that 95% of the unwanted things I usually pick up on the road are with my rear tire. Fixing a tubeless puncture is (IMO) far easier road/trail side than changing/patching a tube.

Happy Riding...
