So you're saying that the rim tape, whatever, doesn't have to be that substantial due to the low pressure in tube? Got ye now. 8)

What do you cut the holes with?

Holes were cut with a 44mm or 1 1/2" holesaw, awfy laborious, I had a pillar drill which helped, I've seen people doing it with a hand drill but I reckon that would be a bit of a mare.

The pair cost me 80 euro, Surly's equivalent rim costs £149 a piece. Sure the finish isn't as good nor the quality and it was a fair bit of work but I had the time and inclination, I can see how some just plump for the factory drilled option.
