Hi, just built a pair of Record/Reflex-wheels for mud and rough courses. Considering using the "belgian method" (glue and tape) of gluing because of the deep groove in Reflex rims. Can't find it anywhere online in Europe though. Anybody knows where to get some tape?
Just ordered 1 roll of Velox Jantex but not quite sure it's the same thing.

Velox Jantex is the right stuff....

Tub tape is tub tape...there's the special Belgium tub tape, it's just the method that has a special name.

Very good method may I add.

I disagree, You don't want to use Tufo tape and expect to get the same results.

Yes but there's no Belgium tub tape that uses a different system etc. It's the same method for all.
