I recently purchased a set of Mavic Ksyrium SL's. I see no reason to run rim tape, except perhaps around the Valve hole. I am fully capable of being wrong so I am throwing the question out to the world. Does anyone else run them without rim tape, totally or just enough to envelop the valve hole? Has anyone tried this with negative success?

I run about 1/2 inch on either side of the valve stem hole. Never had a problem.

They are specifically designed to be run without rim tape.
