Strengths:    Works well, inexpensive.

Weaknesses:    None that I have noted.

Bottom Line:   
Rim strips are nothing to wax philosophical about, unless you've flatted 10 miles from nowhere due to the cheap kind falling apart and pushing the tube into a spoke eyelet(I have never had this happen unless using nylon/plastic OEM strips). The Velox tape has cool, self-adhesive backing for easy installation and when you trim off the excess, cut a few pieces about 1" long and put them with your patch kit, you have just made some excellent tire boots(used when you have a sidewall cut or a whopping big puncture in the tread). All in all, I wouldn't use anything else in my wheels, once installed you can forget about it and enjoy the ride.

KHS Flite 220: 2010 vs 2011 model

After a couple years of planning, I've finally decided to bite the bullet and buy a new road bike and I've narrowed it down to the KHS Flite 220. The problem is that my LBS doesn't have any 2011 models in stock but has a 2010 that is slightly discounted. So, here's my question: What is the diffe ... Read More »
