I recently puchased Mavic EX 823's UST, the place where I bought them said I could also run thes wheels with tubes. Does anyone rides these and what do you think?
You can run non-ust tires with a tube (a rim strip is recommended) or non-ust tires with Stan's Sealant on any UST rim. But why not just run UST?

Actually, Mavic says not to use a rim strip when using tubes with UST rims.

Just regular rim strips!

You're right, by the way where do you place the rimstrip. Is it the same as rim tape. I'm new to UST.
I know Mavic says its OK not to use rim strips but the area where they weld the rim together is ofter rough and may puncture your tube so a rim strip at this junction prevents that.
