          Comments about Nashbar Rim Strips:

          Had to trim excess overlap material were joined at valve hole. Thinner than rim tape so tire is easier to get on and off. Strong enough to not deform into spoke holes too much when using high pressure tires. Was able to get onto the rim easily.

                Comments about Nashbar Rim Strips:

                I've been using these rim strips for 2 or 3 weeks and so far so good. My only complaint is that it's a little tricky to install. The strip is one sealed piece. So, to install it, you have to stretch it quite a bit. Start with the valve hole and work your way around, both sides at the same time. It took me a while to figure it out. The last rim strip I used had opened ends which made it a snap to install.

                  If you don't stretch it first it is going to put up a fight.

                    Comments about Nashbar Rim Strips:

                    mounted easily and thus far have performed well time will tell how durable they are. I ordered 2 and was surprised when I received 4 as they come in pairs a pleasant surprise. For the wider rims I use they fit well but for narrower rims they may not work as well.

                    Comments about Nashbar Rim Strips:

                    These 18mm strips fit my 700c wheels like a glove (ALX 270) and were very straightforward to install. Line up the valve holes, put the tube valve in there and secure. Stretch over the rest of the rim and press all over to seat the strips properly. It takes less than 5 minutes to do and will save you from multitudes of flats (the stock rim strips on my bike were a paltry 12mm...). Decently thick and rigid tape! I would expect it to hold up for years.

                    The only downside is the fact that there are protrusions where the rim strip overlaps itself. The finish there isn't that great, but is easily fixed with a razor blade. Slice off the excess until it is as smooth as the rest of the strip! Very easy to do.

                    Given how cheap these are, I wouldn't even mind if these lasted only a year although I expect much more than that.
