    Velox is the most durable and easiest to install rim tape on the market. In more than a few instances I've transferred strips from wheel to wheel when I had to get the rim replaced. Even with apparently no "stick," when wrapped tight enough, it sticks!

    Here's a fool-proof installation tip: Insert a Bic pen (a screwdriver works too) through the valve hole section, start to lay the tape over the rim bed placing the pen through the valve hole (don't let it slip totally through). This provides an "anchor" for the tape so you can really stretch and align it over the rim bed. When the end of the tape reaches the valve hole again, snip off the excess and smooth everything out with your finger. Voila! Perfectly installed Velox.

    I couldnt get it to stick on the rim. My best guess thinking now is that it was too wide and needed to be cut width wise. I ended up using electrical tape and have not run into problems.

    However If it did fit i would have given it a 5 star review.

                This is the only rim tape i will ever use. The only downside is that it is hidden under a tire and you can't show it off to the world!

                  Install it and forget it.

                  Lasts until you need to take it off, and can often be put back on.

                  Comments about Velox Rim Tape:

                  I wouldn't use any other rim tape unless I had no choice. It is heavy but hey it's cloth what do you expect. Once installed you don't have to worry about it. Not sure how reusable it is but I did install it and have to remove it and reinstall it (it had nothing to do with the rim tape) and it stuck just fine the second time.

                    THis was my first time installing my own rim tape and it was a breeze. I was able to lift up the tape as needed to move if I made a mistake and it sat nicely int he rim and the cloth feel really feels like it protects the tube from getting damaged by the rim.

                    In my opinion there is no better rim tape out there. Extremely durable with a good adhesive. It is not the lightest rim tape but worth the few extra grams.
