    rim tape help!!!!

    Hi,i need some new rimtape to go with new tyres im getting for my road bike.It will be the velox cloth tape as i have used it before on my hybrid.The wheel size on the roadie is 622-18 and the site with the velox has confused me by having four sizes available.These are 10mm 13mm 16mm and 22mm.which one should i get,my insticts tell me the 16mm but i just need proper info.

    Thanks all

    If you mean the width of the rim is marked as 18mm - then you do want the 16mm Velox. Good choice in tape - Velox is the hands-down best.

    Thanks panthers,i think the 18 part of the 622-18 is the width of the rim but not certain.these are the measurements printed on the side of the wheel,would this be right. The tyres on are 700c x 23 and the new tyres are the same size.

    Thanks
