Rim strip for 27x1 ?

Need to put decent rim strips on my set of 27x1 rims. Just old aluminum rims, non-hooked but the old strips are toast. I'd like to use Velox 14 mm or 16 mm. But does a rim strip marked for 622 or 700c have enough length to fit a 630 mm rim for 27x1 "?

I haven't found a factory website that seems to just show "what we make," rather than "what we think we want to sell to Americans."

The difference in circumference is about an inch. I've used Velox tape in this situation without mishap. I think they give you a bunch of extra.

I built a pair of 27" Sun Rims CR-18's and had no issues with Velox.

I did the very thing with some Zefel rim tape yesterday on a 27 inch wheel, had maybe four inches extra.. Only issue was that tape was pre punched for presta and had to enlarge hole a bit, very carefully..

tubes and rim tape are interchangeable between 700c and 27".

I've used pieces of Velox tape left over from other wheels. A centimeter overlap here or there won't hurt.
EDIT: Hi, Ken!
