Description

Description

Stan's NoTubes Yellow Rim Tape has become the standard for achieving a proper seal when converting "normal" rims to tubeless. And by normal, we mean non-UST rims with spoke holes that pierce the outer wall of the rim. What's the big deal with Stan's Yellow Rim Tape you ask? Well, we don't know how it does what it does, but it makes the magic happen. When applied correctly, it provides a durable, long lasting seal.

Preparation is key

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great tape, however it as many have said preparation of the rim itself is key. You'll know in the first few inches if you cleaned the wheel properly. I'll use alcohol first then a good quality brake cleaner and if that doesn't work I will scuff it with a really really fine sandpaper then clean again with brake clean. i have yet to have this method fail.

Good luck

Dependable

    WW Tip:

    Only put tape over the spoke holes. Your friends will laugh at you and everyone think you're crazy, but you save about 8g a wheel!

    Never Not Tubeless.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This tape works well on Stan's on any other tubeless ready rims. I went with the 21mm width and it should be good to go on road, CX, and XC tubeless rims. I would recommend cleaning the rims well with alcohol and running two rounds of tape.

    The Joys and Frustrations of Tubeless

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is solid tape. I've used it many a time and it seals well. Care in application is important - make sure the rim is clean and dry, make sure it goes bead to bead, use a couple layers. I've had it move around on me when pulling the tire off the rim which is frustrating, but I haven't found a stickier option yet and it doesn't leave residue like Gorilla Tape.

    Sticky tape

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Stan's is a great choice for setting up your rims tubeless. Their tape simply works.

    Stan's Gets the Job Done

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Worked well for getting my road tubeless setup going. Definitely clean the surface and tension the tape as others have mentioned, otherwise, you'll need to re-apply (did this once). Once you get it on correctly it works well though.

    Get a bonding surface FIRST....if ya can

    • 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.

    Tension it and double up

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Like Jason says below (and he knows his stuff), tension the tape, make sure you get a good bond (pre-clean, like Jonathan mentions) and do 2 rounds. This all becomes even more important when you're setting up a gravel or road (*don't do it*) wheelset.

    Go to Tape

      Don't mess with other brands, this goes on smoothly with little issue. Just make sure you're tensioning the tape as you put it on.

      This Stan guy is a genius

        There's enough tape in a roll to seal several wheels which means now I'll have lots of extra tubes to make a variety of belts and wallets to sell on Esty.

        need for tubeless

          if you run tubeless this tape is a must. works so well with all the other stans products. There is a reason why stans is the gold standard with tubeless and its because their products work so well

          Do it right

            Pro Tip: work clean. Strip all old tape and funk off wheel. Get the right width. You can put the wheel back in the frame while you install tape to get good tension on it.

            Easier than Gorilla Tape

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            After struggling to remove gorilla tape and the left over adhesive on a set of wheels, a friend mentioned using Stan's tape. It was great advice as it was just as easy to install, but WAY easier when it needs to be removed compared to gorilla tape. The only note I would say on this tape is that you need to apply a fair amount of tension when installing and to be careful when cutting the hole for the valve. All in all a bit more expensive than gorilla tape, but easier to use in my opinion.

            Gold Standard

              Always been a fan of simplicity and originality. Stan's tape does the job, durable, and easy to install.

              As Advertised

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              Yep not much to this product... works great, just like you'd expect. I do like that they offer up different widths so you can get a good fit for your rim. I have used this tape for several seasons now with no issues (knock on wood!). Will keep buying it for sure.

              Great Tape

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              Make sure you buy the right size for your rims and this stuff will work with ease.

              What size for a WTB frequency i25 (25mm inner)?

              Awesome Tape

                If you have a certain kind of tape you already like, go ahead and use it. After all, it's just tape. That said, this stuff is great so if you're looking for what to use, you can't go wrong here.

                good tape

                • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

                I have just started going tubeless, so I don't have a lot of experience with tape. This was easy to apply, and has worked well so far.
