Did a search and couldnt find anything about this so I figured it deserved a post. Bought a new 26" handbuilt wheel with the arch ex hoop. 2 times I tried the gorilla rim strip method. Failed the first time because I ran it all the way to the inner edge and the tire pushed it towards the center causing leaks everywhere.
2nd time I went more narrow with it. Well there are 6 tiny holes around this wheel that are damn near right where the tire bead sits. One spot at the seam there is 4 holes and some low spots. How will any tape seal that? Why is it engineered like this? Doesn't make any sense I bought a stans wheel because I thought the issue with leaks would be over.
I haven't tried it yet but I think I will have to run the stans tape because its thin.
