So I am currently running a full UST setup on one bike and a full out ghetto on another bike. I did this because I purchased a complete bike and didnt want to rebuild a new wheel. So the current ghetto setup is a DT Swiss M480 rim with gorilla tape. It has worked pretty good so far but I have been running into issues lately. Seems the high temps in my garage are having a negative effect on the gorilla tape glue. Im on my third attempt to get the tape from smearing toward the center of the rim once I mount the tire and took the wheel and tape inside for a few hours to let them cool before reapplying.
Ok to the point. So Im looking at the Flow EX's as a possibility for a good AM rim. I plan to run 2.4-2.5 tires sizes but I have my doubts about the yellow tape. I've read on another thread that someone needed to replace the yellow tape because they are losing air. Is the yellow tape better than the gorilla tape solution or am I going to have the same issues? I love my 819's but I want the wider rim so my only other option is an 823 which I know is considerably heavier which is why Im looking at the Flow EX's.
