Rim Tape - I'm looking for 14mm if poss.

Postby tentman » 12 Jul 2019, 7:55am

I need new rim tape for my Chrina rims. At present they have 14mm Schwalbe Blue plastic ones on them. I cannot find a stockist. Is 14mm now replaced by 15mm? I cannot find a stockist for that size either. Any help would be appreciated.

Spa Cycles currently show Schwalbe 14mm rim tape in stock in both 559 and 622 wheel sizes:

Many thanks 'slowster'. However my wheels are 700's and they don't show that size.

700C is an obsolete designation for rims that use 622mm bead seat diameter.

Thank you for your help. I am not sure what bead & seat diameters are but I guess what you are saying is that a 622 tape will fit my 700 wheels. I will order from Spa as suggested earlier. Sorry not to be up-to-date with all this technology.
