Veloplugs to seal out gunk?
I don't compete in cyclocross events, but I do commute through piles of snow, gobs of mud, and deep puddles. A recent inspection of my cloth rim tape showed it to be partially encrusted in sand and salt crystals. I'd rather not have this stuff inside my rim.
Do any of you use veloplugs instead of rim tape? Does it do a better job of keeping junk from getting inside the rim? All of the discussions of veloplugs I've read in these forums are centered around weight savings. I could care less about a few grams. I'd just like to have better protection for the inside of my rim when I ride into a deep salty mud puddle.
