    Hmmm....good thought, my only interest is using modern tubeless rubber.
    I guess that's possible with just lacing up Accels...yes?

    I've heard of guys gluing the spoke nipples (the tire side) with silicon sealer and then running tubeless. I've never tried it, but I have run tubeless tires on the snowflakes which are technically tube type, with no problems.

    Any wires except for the bmw cross spokes are technically tube type since they'll leak air from around the spoke nipples, and most likely won't have the locking bump to grab the bead.
