 Post subject: Brontrager Rhythm Elite Rims- Rim tape recommendations

Hi,

Firstly I would like to point out that I have found these rims including the Brontrager Rhythm Duster rims to be the worst culprits for pinch flats and rim tape rim creep. I am on the 2nd Trek mountain bike and these are the standard rims. The fitting of tires make my fingers bleed in winter. I have used all kinds of rim tape from Velox cloth to Ritchey Snap On Rim Strips. I am out of solutions to stop the creeping of this tape even after applying a second layer. My LB had fitted 2 layers of 'tough PVC' tape which has now ripped. If I had the money I would leave these rims on a railway line for a few months before setting fire to them :twisted:

When I have enough money I will purchase some new rims but that will be another post in the distant future....

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Ferenc

You could try a roll of "stan's" rim tape, and layer it up..!!

This ones the same as stan's but cheaper..

Thanks RedTwo,

I will look into this. Would I buy the 26mm one's? Or the 28mm?

Thanks

Just find out internal rim width of your rims and that will tell you which to use.
