    The best plastic tape is cotton. Get velox. No reason to use plastic. None.

    "good plastic rim tape" is a mythological beast. Kind of like unicorns, bigfoot, and ceramic bearings that make you faster.

    Don't the ceramic bearings also make the bike lighter?

    Lighter and faster = twice as good
