I've used Velox cloth rim tape for many years, always installing it the way I was originally shown; with the ends overlaping about an inch. Recently I redid my everyday road wheels and for some reason I cut the tape so the ends just met with no overlap.
Here's the weird part: for those same many years I have always had a slight thump in my wheels which I always assumed was the valve, and now it's gone! I cannot believe I tolerated that stupid bump unnecessarily for so long!
Am I the only one who didn't know this..?
