        Seems to be a good quality material. construction is better than most. Continental tends to know what they are doing.

        Get the CLOTH rim tape!

          Comments about Continental Easy HP Rim Strips:

          I tried this tape and it was a mistake. The nylon worked at first but on my old wheels the spoke ends began to push through and I wasted three tubes before I figured out what was happening. The nylon slowly creeps and thins out until the metal is sharp enough to pierce the tube. Also, as someone else mentioned, there is nothing to stop it from sliding out of place exposing the sharp edges of the valve hole AND the spoke holes.
          GET THE CLOTH RIM TAPE and have no worries!

            Comments about Continental Easy HP Rim Strips:

            I have always used the cloth adhesive rim tape but since Nashbar doesn't carry it I tried these. I got the more expensive Conti brand thinking it would be better. They went on easily and seemed like a durable product. About two months into riding I started to get cuts on the inside of my tubes almost every ride. After close inspection I noticed that because there is no adhesive, the strips pulled away from the rim exposing the edge of the strip to the tube. While riding, this would end up cutting a 1/4 hole in the tube. No spoke holes were exposed. I imediately went back to the reliable cloth tape that sticks to the rim. Problem solved. I will never buy any brand of these rim strips again. Nashbar, please stock the rim tape and give us an option.

              The product arrived in a timely fashion. It works great, but like I said, it's slightly oversized. I think it's better to be slightly oversized rather than too small.

                This product was easy to install...just insert something like a pencil in the hole and then work product around rim...voila! Should only take you about 15 seconds to put protection on your rim, then just put tube and tire back on and enjoy!

                  Comments about Continental Easy HP Rim Strips:

                  these are the easiest to use rim strips ever. simply use something like a pencil to keep the valve holes lined up and each strip should take less than 30 seconds to install. Much longer or the inability to install these can only be attributed to operator error.

                  Not easy at all

                      Comments about Continental Easy HP Rim Strips:

                      This product is terrible. There is nothing Easy about it. It takes a routine job such as putting rim tape on a wheel and turns it into a ballbuster. It is nearly impossible to keep the hole for the valve stem aligned with the valve stem hole in the rim. After three attempts to get it right, I threw it in the trash.
