You will save a couple of grams going with some Velox cloth rim strips over the thick plastic ones for the Tubelss wheels/Ranger Pride said:I have asked this in a couple of the other areas. If I am not going to use my wheelset tubeless is there an advantage to taking off the factory rim strips and replacing them to save weight?
I would say yes. The Bontrager plastic rim strips are quite thick, again compared to cloth strips.Ranger Pride said:Thanks for the reply.
I wonder if the tires would seat into the rims easier without the tubeless rim strips?
