    Carogna tape, anyone used it yet?

    I have a set of tubulars that got finished just before my last race, but I did not get time to glue up the tires. Now I have a long time until I need to worry about it, but has anyone had personal experience with the Effetto Mariposa Carogna tape? Specifically on aluminum rims with double eyelets (like the Sun Vista Cruiser) that do not have a very smooth rim surface due to the eyelets. I can either go Belgian tape method with glue or try the much less time consuming Carogna.

    I haven't, but one of my teammates has and had nothing but good to say about it. He's a clyde (200+), racing 45 B's.

    Just updating as I mounted some NOS Vittoria XM 34 tubulars to Sun Vista Cruiser rims with the carogna tape last Friday. After letting them sit around inflated for a few days I took them out on my Niner RLT 9 for an easy spin (commute) and can report back that I did not roll a tire and die. I will get them out again and see what happens with lower pressure, I was running about 27psi, and pushing them harder.
