I am lucky enough to have a free supply of tubeless Michelin X-Lights so a 36 hole tubeless rim from an Aprilia Climber was obtained and is now being laced on.

Once the knee is back up to strength and the worst of the winter is over i will still have a bike to play on :)
Good to here that your knee is getting better.

BTW. if you haven't tried yet, the tubless X-Lights holds on the standard Acront rims pretty well, (with an additional tube), even in very rocky terrain and low air pressure, (the pic shows the "autobahn" part during the trip).
