When you need a replacement rim strip for your tube and clincher road rims, try these simple, but very effective woven nylon rim strips. They stretch a little for installation, the sort of snap into place in the rim bed, conforming to the shape, covering the spoke holes to protect the tube.

Two tips for install: don't over stretch, and if you use a pen something similar to align the valve holes while you'll, it makes it easier and requires less manipulation once installed. Specialized uses a color coded system and wheel size system, along with wheel size and rim bed width.
