Fit the bill (and the rims)

    Comments about Nashbar Rim Strips:

    Ordered the 'road' size, when stretched it snugged down into the rim securely. It was a bit wider than necessary, but I have rather narrow rims (R450, about 14mm inside), and the extra width did not interfere with the seating of the tire bead. I think this rim strip would be ok for rims up to about 18mm inside width.

      Comments about Nashbar Rim Strips:

      Still switching back and fourth between strips and tape, but these work well for my MTB wheels. I like to put my wheels in the sun after installing the strips so they can relax, and conform to the lips and valley in the wheel profile. Strips that "walk-around" inside the wheel still drive me crazy, but with all the different types of wheels, you have to experiment a little to learn what works for your application. I'm happy with these for now.

        Comments about Nashbar Rim Strips:

        Bought these for my vintage 26" MTB build. I pre-stretched them a little with a small bungee cord for about an hour, just to get them unraveled. They required some stretching to put them on the rim, but nothing tough. The fit was PERFECT. Highly recommend these. I will not hesitate to buy more of these next time I'm replacing rim tape.

            Now that I tried this rim strip, I wont buy any other. I didn't know two strips came in each package and so I ordered two packages. I'm glad I have an extra now

            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.
