    Tubeless Rim Tape

    I concur, read this thread and used the blue bear masking tape on my new carbons wheels. Works perfect. Also tried the Norton cloth tape on another wheel set and works fine as well. Why pay quadruple the price for Gorilla tape beats me.

    I ride 38mm and its ok, unless cross winds are 40kph +.. Btw its only an issue on front wheel, so 50mm deep on the rear is less of an issue.
