Avoid the burp

If you are going to run tubeless tires this year, consider using a rubber rim strip and not just the yellow tape, even if your rims are tubeless-specific.

From http://velonews.competitor.com/2010/01/news/cyclocross/technical-faq-tire-sealants_102346:
In a recent column, you describe how Hutchinson tubeless CX tires “burp” at low pressure. The solution to this is to run a Stan’s No Tubes conversion rim strip. I’ve been running both the Bulldogs and the Piranhas on Ksyrium SL wheels with the Stan’s cyclocross rim strips. I can get them to seal on those rims without (those strips), but they burp badly.
