- Fitting tubeless tape (specifically re: width of tape)
You’re meant to cover the whole width of the rim bed (horizontal) but not extend up the rim wall (vertical), I used a full width roll of gorilla tape and started a cut for the correct width and then just torn it along its length (like you do across to tear a piece off) as I wrapped round the rimPosted 3 years agosam_underhillSubscriber
Cool. So it must go at least to the edge of the rim bed, that makes sense. As it’s a slight curve, it’s probably not massively critical to the fraction of a millimetre if it goes around this curve a little, but don’t be an idiot and extend up the rim wall.

I’m planning on fitting a cut down Gorilla tape to my new LB rims(seems to be what Enve use so it’s good enough for me). But regardless of which tape you use (stans/gorilla/superstar etc) is the width of tape that critical? I guess the main point is that it creates an airtight seal, but must it go al the way to the vertical part of the rim? Taking that question a bit further, does it matter if it laps up the vertical part a little, or indeed is a good idea to ensure it does? If it does, will this slightly affect how the tyre bead sits against the side of the rim?Posted 3 years ago
