    Rim tape

    Hello

    I was wondering if anybody has ever put rim tape(yeah, like the stuff on crotchrockets) on the outside of a rim. I am not talking about mr. Tuffy type of stuff, but like a colored tape around the outside of the rim just inside the tire. Would look sweet with the right kind. Do you use a roll of it or is it already cut out in a circle?

    I put it on my Pugs as well as my Stumpy for night riding.
    Looks great and has held up very well.

    Is this said "Rim Tape" meant to be used on a bicycle. If so you are in the wrong forum. We don't discuss those ugly contraptions in this forum.

    when tape-ing your rim it is important to use the proper terminology. i think the question your asking is how to give a proper rim job? if so, a good cleaning is the first step of this process. perhaps the other members skilled in this type of application can give some good advice... tones?

    No thanks. It adds unnecessary rotating weight at the worst possible place on the bike.

    Hold on SS, i thought cleaning the butthole with the tongue was all a part of the rimming process, ive never heard of people actually artificially cleaning it with anything before the actual rimming process, i thought that first bitter taste was all part of getting to the fun, ive been dead set doing it wrong then, my mrs has me conned !!

    But whats actually really kinky and strange is putting coloured tape around the butthole before you go to town on it, some people are damn weird, where is the OP that penned this blog, he is a sick man.
