This kit is designed to take the guesswork out of setting up your Surly Other Brother Darryl Fat Bike rims tubeless and includes everything you need aside from your favorite sealant and tubeless ready tires. Included in the kit are Surly woven nylon rim strips, custom Whisky Parts Co tubeless tape, Whisky Parts Co 35mm tubeless valves, and Problem Solvers valve nuts.
This kit will not convert older Surly Rolling Darryl rims to tubeless as the rim tolerances are as exact as the one on the newer Other Brother Darryl rims. If you have Rolling Darryl rims and are looking to go tubeless, the split tube method is still your best bet.

asked by: a guest Will this work for Schrader valve rims?
anwered by: canteau Unfortunately, no this kit is specifically designed for the Surly Other Brother Darryl rims which are drilled for Presta valves and are included in the kit. You might be able to use the rim strip and tape on a non-Surly rim but the valves would be too thin.

This kit is easy enough to install as far as tubeless goes. I almost used mucoff valves because of the other review, but I used everything that came with the kit and I’m glad I did. Follow the instructions and end up with perfect tubeless fat tires. It took me about 2 hours for each tire, but the results are worth it. The taping takes the most time, but just go slow and make it straight. The wolftooth valves work just fine and the ps nuts fit well. Just go tubeless already, it’s worth the gains. Be cooler if the valves were black.
Disappointing overall. I think narrower tape would have gone on easier with two passes, albeit heavier. For me, the stems are junk and have been a waste of my time and resources. I like the rim strips.
