got rim strips from my LBS. i think they are too narrow. i have bontrager rhythm 29er rims that i think are wider than normal rims. when i snapped in the rim strips one side has a small gap between the rim and the rim strip. this seems wrong to me. i thought it should go as wide as the entire rim. can anyone confirm?

Yes, you have the wrong rim strip. It should look like part of the rim when installed--bead hook to bead hook.

And remove the old blue rim strip before you install the correct one.

Yep, wrong one. They got you the asymmetric rim strip, likely part # 400337 for the RXL wheel. What you need for the Rhythm is the 406892 symmetric rim strip.

And a Shiggy noted, pull the blue rim strip out before you install the TLR strip or it won't seat properly in the rim.
