- Pro 2 Mavic 717 Hope Hoop tubeless conversion
I had some rim strips kicking about and used them for belt & braces approach.
Not sure what tape you got, but I used the stans stuff the LBS had – it was a Friday pm with beer and BS job 🙂 Used new tyres as I had too much tread for local riding. There are a few variables with tyres etc. Best bet is to have a go and see what happens 🙂 Finding somewhere with a compressor will make life easier and someone who has done it before. As above my lbs is happy with the Fri PM beers so good time to play about in someone elses workshop.Posted 5 years agoPJM1974Member
The 717 is pretty narrow so you’ll want something like this:
I run 717s with a tubeless Spesh Storm/Captain combination on my hardtail and it’s behaved perfectly. I didn’t even need to use a compressor, it just inflated pretty nicely from a track pump.
I use the normal Joes XC width strips on my XM719 equipped full suss bike.Posted 5 years agoandyrmMember
Did a conversion on a mate’s wheels the other week, these exact rims.
5 wraps of this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/150333028414?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 which coincidentally is the tape Stan’s used to recommend before they started to make strips.
Little trick is to take the valve cores out when doing first inflation and have them ready to F1 style refit. Helps you get loads more air in quicker and seat.
We were using standard Minions and a track pump. Went straight up, used 2 cups of Stan’s fluid and have worked perfectly with no burping at all.Posted 5 years ago
