The St Martin are ACE and the perfect width for narrower rims. Odyssey are good too but a little wider if memory serves me correctly. You put tape on there and the whole thing can get a bit messy. It's worth the investment to put rim strips on. Like a new set of grips on a new build or new set of bars :D

I've had velox b4 but rather just stick to the normal rim strips

Yea those st martins fit the my narrower sun lite rims like a glove, can't believe I've been messing around with tape for so long (like for the last 25 years!) so much cleaner and professional. I decided to use them since I was building such nice wheels, would be a shame to resort to electrical tape
