Kysriums questionsSnake

I just received my new ksyriums and have two questions
1- I assume I dont need rim tape right? No spoke holes to worry about,or do I need something near the valve stem?
2- The plastic chain gaurd rubs the spokes when coastin making a crappy noise. Is it installed wrong or do I just need to pitch it?

Thanks

1. Yep, you can skip the rim tape and just put the tube and tire on as normal.

2. Don't know anyone who uses the spoke protector, tried mine but had simlar problems. Just make sure you use the little spacer in it's place if your running Shimano - they say you need one or the other and I'm not going to risk it.

Enjoy your wheels - they feel "slippery" with the lower spoke count and reduced drag. If you decide to peel the stickers off Goo Gone works great for getting the residue off.
