Tapeworks Rim Job

Put some reflective tape on the wheels. Pricey, but looks nice in the day and reflects great after dark.

Title is misleading.... When a chick approached me about a Rim Job no tape or wheels were involved...

did you order the standard roll size or did you need the larger one? I want to get the blue reflective on my bike, but I want to make sure the standard roll will be enough. did you buy the stripe-it-all tool too?

I did my 650 with one roll of Pro-Grip reflective red about a year ago, still looks good. BUT there was none to spare so DON'T screw up.

Or was that look THEN leap?

Yes, the tool is cheaper if you buy it with a roll of tape. Very easy to apply with the tool. Wouldn't recommend trying to do it without it.

The tool requires cutting a strip of felt to guide the tape. They make a big deal about using it if you want it to work properly. They also make a big deal about ensuring that the one nut that holds it together is completely tight. On my 4th and final strip, my nut came loose and I botched it. Fortunately, there were two extra pieces in the roll, so I still have one piece to cut some reflective strips for the side bags.

It's cheaper, but comes in fewer colors. I also don't believe it's reflective, but I could be wrong about that.

Glad I could make a post to entertain our Hustler fans and other assorted deviants.

Is a rim job the same as a tossing the salad without the jelly?
