Advice needed - tyres/tubes

Hi all,

Slowly getting to grips with more of the techy side of cycling (usually just jump on the bike and ride kinda thing).

I’m looking at an upgrade and have set my sights on the Giant Defy Advanced 2 Disc.

Looking at the tyres/rims it comes with these seem to be tubeless.

Now with my limited experience of DIY’ing it I would prefer to use tubes with the simplicity of I know how to fit/change them etc.

My question to you is - with this bike - am I able to use a tube in the tyre with those rims or would this be just leading to problems? If so would I be able to swap the tyres for non-tubeless and be good to go?

Thanks for any input and apologies if this is a very obvious post to some!
