Geoffwrote a review of Stan's NoTubes Rim Tape on May 2, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This was my first experience with Stans Tape / Sealant.
I had great luck on my 2013 Bontrager Mustang and son's 2017 Mustang rims.........but ran into some trouble on wifes 2017 Mustang rims off Superfly.
They seem to have "lubed" the tires on which seemed clear when they easily "slipped off" in comparison to the other tires I was changing out.
However, the wheel being absolutely smooth and perfect along with this mystery lube made it virtually impossible to get the Stans tape to stick.
~I used the clean it with alcohol method 1st....no go.
~Tried tire/wheel cleaner for my car which I wouldn't even put on my chain/cassette 2nd.....no go.
Then some old Fantastic before sanding the inside of rim giving tape something to bond to before using alcohol once more. (hope rim doesn't corrode now)
Well, it kind of stuck.......So I held it down with major tension and made my way around the wheel exhausted....before going around a 2nd time just-in-case.
Added the Stan's sealant and we've been good after several rides now!!!
Why did I just drone on and on?!?!..............wanted people to know that while I would have posted reviews like the others that you see above after the 1st two sets of wheels I replaced........it was the 3rd set that gives me pause to find something that will both Clean/Etch the rim before I reapply tape to her rims again.
Therefore, don't wait till an hr before a planned ride to do this like I did!! But, being a "smart husband", I wanted to make sure nothing goes wrong on my wife's bike! ;-) fingers crossed.
Hey "Stan,"..........Perhaps you can get with these Bontrager folks and come up with a rim cleaner ;-)
Thus, I'd give the product 5 stars for 2 out of the 3 rims I set up that day...........but need to bring attention to folks running the new 2017 Mustang wheels.
