Specialized Rim Strip is the ideal rim protection for both mountain and road bikes. Flats can be caused by rim strips getting old and deforming into the spoke holes, creating a pressure point for the tube. Repeated flats on the inside of the tube against the rim may mean the strip needs replaced.
I bought these for a new set of Hope 20five rims. Rims have a 20mm internal width, these fitted lovely, tight to get on over the rim but easy to shuffle about once on. Less bulk than rim tape so stubborn tyres can be fitted more easily. Would buy again.

What are wheels?
Wheels are probably the second most important part of your bike, after the frame. A lot of the bike’s riding characteristics come from its wheels.
Who needs wheels?
A wheel upgrade can make a massive difference to your bike. Because of this, you might consider a new set of wheels, even if the old ones aren’t worn or damaged.
What are the choices?
Mountain bikers choose their wheels in 26in, 27.5in or 29in size, depending on what their frame is built for. Road bike wheels are 700c. Beyond this, there’s a dizzying array of rim material and depth, spoke type and hubs galore – enough to make your head spin faster than your wheels.
What should I buy with them?
A wheel upgrade always deserves a lovely new set of tyres. These too have a massive impact on how your bike rides.
There are several approaches to buying wheels – you can buy a full wheelset, for perfect pairing, or you can take a modular approach, picking hubs and rims before having a new set built to your specification.
