    Proper UST rims are a bit heavier, but its just one less thing to not work in a tubeless set up.

    After failing to get a stans kit to work on either DT Swiss 4.1s or Mavic 717’s (with UST tyres) I gave up.

    Bought a set of Shimano XT UST wheels and tubeless worked first time.

    Another + 1 for Specialized 2bliss tyres. Relaible tubeless while saving a lot of weight over UST tyres

    Though you appear to be comparing UST with conversion kits, not UST with Notubes rims. Those of us with both Notubes rims and conversion kits will happily confirm that the kits are a bit more hassle and don’t work quite as easily as Notubes tubeless specific rims. The only additional thing to worry about with Notubes rims over UST ones is putting a bit of tape on – not really all that difficult, and well worth the weight saving IMHO (given you seem pleased with the idea of saving weight on tyres).
