    Stan's 340 rim tape, do I need rim strips too?

    I am going to run these wheels in a tubed configuration. From my understanding I need two layers of the yellow Stan's rim tape. Do I also need a rim strip on top of that?

    If you run tubes, one layer of Stan's tape is all you need. Don't put anything over it.

    I ran one layer, it lasted about a year and finally stretched to the point that it split. I looked at some of the other spoke holes and was pretty amazed by how deep they had got. It was down to the top of nipples on some. I'd recommend 2, or a layer of re enforced shipping tape. One layer seems to work fine on the MTB rims where the pressure is lower.

    You need two layers of the 21mm tape with tubes or tubeless. No rim strip.
