You could put an 1100 rear end in your Mono frame -- Have a look here Chris Emmersons bike

But that's a paralever, not a monolever (R80G/S).
The paralever R100GS already has crosspokes...

I wouldn't go to the cross-spoke wheels if I had a monolever. I'd lace in some Accel rims instead - supposed to be some of the most rugged rims you can get. I heard a story of a group of guys all hitting the same obstacle in Mexico and the two without bent rims rode on Accels.

Those cross-spoke rims are strong, but they've got their limits. If they bend, you're in deep doodoo, but regular rims can be repaired much more easily. Also, those cross spoke wheels are lots heavier than any others. They certainly look cool, and I like them, but they're not necessarily the absolute best.

Ever notice how many guys laced 'normal' rims to their cross-spoke hubs?

Hmmm....good thought, my only interest is using modern tubeless rubber.
I guess that's possible with just lacing up Accels...yes?

I've heard of guys gluing the spoke nipples (the tire side) with silicon sealer and then running tubeless. I've never tried it, but I have run tubeless tires on the snowflakes which are technically tube type, with no problems.

Any wires except for the bmw cross spokes are technically tube type since they'll leak air from around the spoke nipples, and most likely won't have the locking bump to grab the bead.
