Nothing says you can't put a tube in a tubeless tire.

You're probably right. Tube type.
Woody is currently working on this bike though, and they will be tubeless.

Spoked wheels are more durable. If you ever bend a rim on a spoked wheel its pretty cheap to have a new rim laced to the hub then buying a whole new wheel.

Although it would take alot of wheel bashing for the wheels to make up for that price tag.
