I'm concerned about the narrowness of the DT XR4.1 rim with regards to using it with a Stans' Setup. It is supposedly just a hair narrower than the Mavic x517.

Anyone using this setup or had any issues with getting Stans to work with this rim?

I am also looking at the Velocity Synergy which has a quoted width of 23mm as compared to 21.6mm for the DT.

Thanks

I'm using the DT UST conversion set up

Works great with the beautiful 4.1 rims. FWIW, Stan's liquid seems to work better than the DT mix.

Worked fine for me

I had the strips left from a set of Mavic 223's - they were tight fitting into the xr4.1's but I think that that is an advantage when it comes to their ability to seal. They butt right up to the lip of the rim all the way around whereas on the 223's the strip had to be manipulated to be evenly distributed around the rim.
