I was at the store the other day and they didn't have the exact size I needed. How close to the edge of the rim should the tape come? Should it go all the way up to the wall, or should there be some extra room in there?
if you are not doing any crazy downhills it wont matter - if you are doing something with LONG descents like 6 gap or something like that, go with a good cloth rim strip. Braking for longer periods of time can cause tape to heat up and actually blow your tire. The last thing you want is a blow out on a descent that is steep enough that you are having to brake that much. If you are riding in FL or have nuts the size of watermelons and can go plus 60 down a mountain...use whatever
