    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.

    Rincon, you should post your question in General or Wheels and tires. If you do the latter, give us a heads up though so we can head over there to see the responses. They should be very helpful on this matter and I am curious to see what they have to say.

    When I read the title of this thread I thought we were going to talk about dental dams.

    No need to get testy, you're the one who posted your question in the wrong forum.

    I was thinking about making an "exclusive playground".. If I ever get it accomplished (it's a storage room atm - I'd need to get rid of everything in there and remodel).. rim tape could be one of the items that adorn the room. How well does it adhere and stick to the body?

    I'm sure there is rim tape that comes in all sizes.. or a "one size fits all" elastic rim tape.

    I think the OC may have been more helpful for advice on "outside of the rim tape" than the OP let on. He's not getting any in the Wheels and Tires sub-forum.
