I have got some new wheels, but they dont have any tape covering the tips of the spokes....:frown:

Is it necessary with ultra HD inner tubes, and will gaffa tape suffice for now?

Cheers, Dave.

i wouldn't use gaffer tape, i wouldn't want to be barreling into a corner with the thought in the back of my mind "is that gaffer tape going to stop the spokes wearing through my inner tube", only my thoughts

gafer tape will work for a while. i use it with mousses. but it does wear though in time. so best get a rim tape.

Twice around the rim with gaffer tape is what i've always used.

Replaced every time i change the tyre or replace a patched tube.
