The right way to do it is was with a Stan's conversion kit, but they seem to be gone like the dodo. They have a thick rim strip that fills in the deeper clincher channel and provides the ramps and grooves for seating the bead. Getting the tire to seat is a pain without it, but it can be done. I used 2 layers of Gorilla on my first go and it worked, but not great. I've not tried the "ghetto tubeless" approach with the slit 24" tube. For this bike it would be easiest just to stick with tubes.
