Good rim tapes

PostedJune 15, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Good tapes, but sizing on packet seems a bit confusing (I.e. Nothing obvious like 700C or 26" etc.)

Good protection but a little tricky to fit

PostedMarch 9, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: fit
This tape seems thick enough to stop any protrusions from the rim puncturing your inner tube but it is a little tricky to fit. Rather than a roll of stick rim tape it is single piece that you have to stretch a little to get it in place. Once onto the rim getting a dead centre takes a bit a perseverance as you don't really want to use any tools that might damage the tape or you new rim.

Does what it says on the tin

PostedFebruary 6, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cheap little essential part to any wheel assembly, stops the spoke holes from giving you a puncture. Easy to apply, simply line up the valve hole with the tape hole (I put a spare tubeless valve through the rim hole and tape hole to ensure they lined up), and pop the rest on - isn't too stiff so as to be impossible to apply, but isn't too lose so as to be movable once installed.
Great product, price and service.

So Nice

PostedNovember 4, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Strong enough and flexible won't mark on spokes holes and it's easy to install and remove and it can be reused so many times without losing ability to catch the rim.

Bike ribbon rim tape

PostedApril 11, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: can be tricky to fit
Product was received the following day after ordering which is an excellent service.
The tape was slightly tricky to fit as obviously it has an elasticity with it and is difficult to move once in place.
But if you start by lining up the valve holes first of all then it's not a real problem as it doesn't slide on the rim. Fits snugly to the wheel
