    Comments about Velocity Rim Plugs:

    These things are fantastic! But there is a lot of mis-information out there about them. I've even heard a wholesaler who supplies them diss the product for "causing flats". I can assure you, I've ridden these for over three years and have NEVER had a flat caused by them.....including on a fully-loaded cross-continental tour.

    The Veloplugs are touted by the manufacturer for being lighter than rim-tape. (But that is a pretty weight weanie concern.) Their real advantages are:

    (a) Allows replacement of a spoke by removing only one plug rather than removing all the tape
    (b) Reusable (I've used the same set of Veloplugs over three or four wheel-builds)
    (c) They take up less space inside the tire than rim-tape, which means it is much, much easier to install new, tightly fitting tires

    The ONLY downside to these, and it is a significant consideration, is that they aren't compatible with every rim/manufacturer. Obviously, they work great with any Velocity rim. But they won't work with rims which have double (internal) ferrules. Velocity makes various diameters of Veloplug for different drillings of the internal rim hole. However, even if you get the right drilling, some rims may not have enough depth on the inner cavity to allow the Veloplug to completely snap in. And, obviously, these won't work with single-wall rims at all.

    It's nearly impossible to know if the Veloplugs will work with a given rim until you try them. So you may have to just risk it and be prepared to down-grade to rim-tape if things don't pan out. However, these are so worth it, I'd risk it. Hopefully more and more manufacturers will realize the value here and make sure they design their rims to be compatible.

    These little plugs are light. They work well.
    Unlike rim tape. You can remove them, to change a spoke.
    Don't be fooled. It's a lot more work to install them, then rim tape!
    If your plugging 32 or 36 holes per rim.
    It takes some time. But I think it is worth it.
    Make sure you get the right size, as there are two sizes.
    I would use these over rim tape, on any clincher wheel build.
