Here's what others have to say...

The rims are UST certified, so if pair with a UST tire, they wouldn't need sealant. Not running sealant kind of defeats the puncture resistance advantage of running tubeless, so I would personally still use sealant with both a UST and a non UST or tubeless ready tire. The rim does not need a rim strip, but if using sealant, it's never a bad idea to have a layer of Stans tape down.

This is the 40 mixed tapered headset that is used on the Santa Cruz Highball. I haven't ever heard of the "TR" variant, most headsets are either and external cup (EC), zero stack (ZS) or integrated. The highball uses a ZS top cup and an external lower cup. Please call me directly at 801-736-6396 x4378 and I'd be happy to help with your build or any other questions you may have.

Gave these a try, pad and sleeve are bigger than the photos look. Padding in one pad from top to bottom, didn't ride them, but they would probably conform to your knee some. I wouldn't want to pedal much with these on, pretty much lift service only is where I could see myself using these.

These are very similar to the Fox Launch Pro and the Troy Lee T-Bone. A little lower profile than the Foxs, and similar in fit and comfort. Top and bottom velcro closures make them stay in place when pedaling. Haven't had them out on a super long effort or a hot day, so not sure on breathability.

While longer/taller than the One Industries Enemy and the 661 Comp am knee guards, these seem more comfortable to pedal in. The side and rear material is ergo formed and very pliable out of the bag. The upper and lower velcro traps make a secure and comfortable fit. Similar options would be the Kali Protectives Aazis Soft Knee Guard and the Troy Lee T-Bone

These pads have more bulk than the photo suggests. While you could pedal in them, I wouldn't want to do too much with them on. Definitely better suited for lift service type days, or putting them on at the top of a long descent.
