Anyone got a good source of quality tubeless tape that works well - other than the No Tubes stuff which is great but expensive?

I've tried nylon reinforced tape but it seems to lose it's stickiness after a while.

Thanks

Rich

I'd stick with no tubes; £3 a wheel ain't too bad is it?
Everything else I've seen is more...

I've had Gorilla tape on some DT swiss cheese rims with no problems for nearly 12 months. :D

I've used gorilla tape on my rims after the Stans yellow tape got mangled in a battle with a schwalbe ust and a chunky tyre lever. Works fine, and 3 quid odd a roll.
Had to cut it to the right width for my rim internal diameter, but was easy with a Stanley knife and a pile of books to rest it on while I rotated the tape against the blade.

Superstar components do a tubeless rim tape, £7 a roll which is enough for 5 or 6 rims

Ah ha. Have you tried it?

Noticed that Specialized make some as well but I can't find out how wide it is. Still it's a tenner for 55m of the stuff so I'll take a punt on it.
