    Rim Tape/Ribbon for 90mm UMA's

    Hi Guys,

    The ribbon that is on my 90mm UMA rims is getting really messy. What are people using for a replacement? Tape or ribbon?

    Also what size you using and where is the best place to get it?

    Thanks

    I'd call Speedway, assuming you're running tubeless at least. I don't know any other source for the super wide "Stans" tape.

    No tubeless here just the standard tube setup.

    Sooooo, anything wrong with the 4 colors available from Surly for the Clownshoes?

    I'm confused I guess. The wide tubeless tape is hard too find, I get that, but wide rim strips for fat tires are like apples on a tree in the Fall....

    I went out to Fabricland and bought some ribbon in a colour that I liked. I glued it on with super 77 from 3m. Give me a shout and you can pop by to see if you like.

    I bought some cordura (backpack type material). It's tough as nails and so far it has shed water and mud like a duck.
