So I got a beautiful set of 404 clinchers off ebay awhile back and I'm getting them ready to roll.
I read in Zipp's own Maintenance & Care Manual that regular cloth Velox rim tape should not be used (in bold print) on Zipp clinchers b/c of tight tolerances and that style of tape is too thick. Of course they recommend Zipp brand rim tape only, it's thinner...which I am not opposed to buying if it is the right thing to use.
Is this a legit concern or marketing at work? Zipp clincher owners have any thoughts on this.
I did a search and couldn't find anything, also posted this in Road forum.
