I also have orange vinyl lying around. But it's straight. Maybe a stupid question but is the vinyl for wheels different to curve around the wheel?

what i had to do with my bike was pretty much this:


if what you have is pinstripe tape, then it should have some flexibility in it for doing curves. i don't know if there is a difference between regular pinstripe tape or wheel tape. my one big concern is whether it can hold up to road debris, brake dust, and wheel cleaners.

Damn. So the wheels I bought have a rim lip width of 3/8 of an inch. Think I should go for the 1/4'' or 1/8'' rimstripes?

my personal preference would be to go with something thin since there is no raised lip.

we already talked about how to do it on page 1...
