    Yellow Rim Strips ?

    Looking for some yellow rim strips for my yellow Pugsley with Marge Lite Wheels. Surly doesn't sell that color. Any ideas out there? Thanks.

    Go to a craft store and buy yellow ribbon, 2" width. Or use yellow Duck (brand) tape.

    I used cordura (backpack material) and it works well.

    Looks pretty cool. The downside to those Borealis rims I want, is my rims won't be all tricked out.

    You could always get the Fatback carbon rims, since they have cutouts.

    When taping fat bike rims with cutouts, how do you avoid the sticky side from collecting dirt and debris through the cut outs? I must be missing something.

    The sticky side has got to be on the inside and you probably have to be sticking it onto something first.
    I'm cheap.. just reused my existing Surly rim tape and stick some nice color "flamed" tape over it

    If you go the route of the reflective adhesive tape, it has a backer on it. You can just leave that on the tape, or peel it off after you've gone full circle. I take a standard 3-hole punch and put a hole in it for the presta valve, perfect size, nice and clean. That gives me 1/4" of overlap and I use the adhesive on the tape to hold the 2 ends together.

    I did like this... took the colored rim tap and wrapped it around my rim with the colored (non-sticky) side facing the rim cutouts. LEAVE THE COLORED TAPE BACKING ON. When I got all the way around I taped it to the other end. Then I ran two strips of duct tape sticky side to what would be the sticky side of the colored tape, all the way around. This holds it in place and acts as another barrier so the colored tape doesn't burst when you add air pressure.

    The grey is the two strips of duct tape, colored tape underneath:

    We're running Tyvek material from a map.
    Looks cool and weighs 12g vs typically 80-115g for a 90mm strip (for 100mm rims)
