Rim Tape Installation (Regular Wheel)

Service Price: $15

Rim strips are a crucial part of the wheels on your ebike. The rim strip is the barrier between your bikes tubes, and the spoke holes on the inner rim of your wheels. These rim strips have to be able to withstand a large amount of pressure from the tubes and the weight of the ebike. If your rim strip gets moved or damaged, it can cause flat tires on your ebike by tearing, pinching, or slicing your tube. 

During our rim strip replacement service, we would remove your tire and tube from your wheel to expose the inner section of your ebike wheel. We would then remove your old rim strip and clean off the inner rim of the wheel, while making sure nothing in that inner rim will cause you any flat tires in the future(any sharp points or foreign objects). After the inner rim has been cleaned and is free of any sharp points, we then stretch the new rim strip onto the wheel and get it into position. Making sure the rim strip is properly in place covering all of the spoke holes and not twisted or kinked anywhere. This is important to ensure the tube does not rupture upon reinstallation. Whenever the tire and tube is pulled off your ebike wheels, always take note that the rim strip is still in place and has not moved around.
