    ROX vs. PVC Surly Rim Strip

    Anyone had experience with both of these?

    If so:

    Which is more durable?
    Which one is heavier?
    And do both have a sticky back?

    I'm drilling some Large Marge offsets and would appreciate some advice on what to use...

    The ROX I have has a sticky back the Surly doesn't and you really don't want sticky. I was very impressed with the Surly stuff, more durable I don't know but I have had ribbon hold up for over a year so you won't have a problem as the Surly Strip seems very tuff. Which on is heavier...really?
    And I love beer!!

    Yeah, the weight all adds up... I've been told the Surly rim strip is not even necessary and to use duct tape or packing tape.

    I'm drilling out my Large Marges and need to line it with something cheap, light and durable...

    What are other people using?

    I plan on using Q-tube lights with some Stans in them...

    Just use ribbon if you want light then. You asked for durable.

    edit: I used Fat Stans for tubeless but I have heard of people using Gorilla tape as well.
