Truing Tubeless Converted Wheels?

I started to order some Stans rim strips for my Monocog 29er, but then reconsidered when I had to pull the tire off the rim to true the rear wheel the other day.

Has anyone found a way around this? I know from experience that pulling the tire off of a Stans converted rim can be a huge mess. I also know that if I get a real pro to setup the wheels they *should* stay true for a long time.

I have a Park Professional Truing Stand and there's no way that I can see to get the wheel on there with the tire in place.

Thanks!

It's not very hard to true a wheel while still on the bike, I don't even bother to remove wheels now. Heck, I've built many wheels without a truing stand.

You're obviously more talented than me. I can usually get them fairly straight, side to side, while still on the bike but I've never had much luck and getting the little "hops" and stuff like that out unless I put them on a stand.

Plus, it's probably kind of goofy but I really enjoy truing wheels on a nice stand--especially when you get down to where they're almost perfect and you're working on that last little "snick-snick-snick" as the wheel's spinning. Very therapeutic.
