    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.

      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.

          I'm not sure I've ever used any other rim tape. Very easy to apply, if you get the right size it'll fit perfrctly with no need for trimming. This stuff will probably live as long as your rim as long as you don't mess with it.

          Pros

            Comments about Velox Rim Tape:

            The 22mm width fitted my WTB Speeddisc 29er rims perfectly. I didn't even need to trim the length. I was previously having problems with narrower rim tapes moving around over time and partly exposing the spoke holes which led to flats.
            I've also had problems with rim tapes going hard after exposure to water which created an edge sharp enough to cut into the tube over time. Too early to see if these will also have this problem but because the width fills the inner rim properly I have high hopes they won't.

                    Comments about Velox Rim Tape:

                    I have yet to find a better solution than velox for rim tape. I use it on all my road, mountain and cyclocross bikes. I have never had a flat tube resulting from abrasion with velox tape installed. I typically remove whatever was installed OE on any new wheelset and install velox instead.
