Huh?Zubius said:I used the ghetto setup but changed to a rimstrip soon after. With the ghetto set up the Schwalbe 2.4 Racing Ralph measured 2.25, with the rimstrip it measured 2.35.
Oh where did you hear this rumor? Is this a good thing? Sounds like it might be.Frs1661 said:Rumor has it the XCR rims are re-badged DT 4.2's... so you should be good with their rim strips.
EnglishT said:The only difference ghetto would make is that it effectively gives you the profile of a narrower rim (since you've got around 1mm thickness between the bead and the rim, it would effectively be like running a rim 2mm thinner).
That said, the difference between a rim 2mm wider is not gonna be anywhere close to making a 2.25 into a 2.3 - the profile might change a bit, but its not gonna change the effective width by much at all.
