    Olympic and which rimstrip?

    I've just had a wheel rebuilt, swapped a 717 rim for an Olympic. I was running an Eclipse A126U strip/double sises tape with normal tires on the 717's, but now I'm unsure which strip (if any) I need. Can I use Stans yellow tape and an Eclipse valve, or just the old rimstrip (which fits ok) and do I have to use a Stans valve?
    Thanks.

    you shouldnīt need any rimstrip on that rim, most times it works great just with there yellow tape when using notubes rims. it shold work with eclipse valve, if you didnīt get any one with the rims.
