|I just started using the tape and I find it works well. I also feel confident in it's ability to keep the tire secure.|

|Go buy a tube of glue, and put them on the right way.
FWIW, not one rider in the TdF uses tape.

|FWIW not one guy in the TDF glues his own tires.|

|The Tufo tape works well. It holds tightly -- I can corner fast and with confidence when I'm on my tubies. |
And, FWIW, not one rider in the tour doesn't have a mechanic hired to do his gluing in advance for him.

|i used the jantex tub. tape a while back and it might as well have been scotch tape--didn't hold at all.
i've heard the tufo works good though.
