Rim Tape versus Rim Strip
I presume that rim tape (Velox) are somehow better than rim strips, but just how are they better? I tried Velox (well, it's still on there), but it seemed like a fair amount more work than just putting on a rubber rim strip--it didn't want to sit flat over the spoke nipples. In fairness, this is an older rim, probably 20 years old, a 27x1 1/4, so maybe wrong tape? Anyhow, what's the diff?
