|Hi all, I'm about to put some Velox rim tape on my wheels and was wondering if I should butt the two ends of the tape together or should I use enough of the tape so that it overlaps a bit? By the way the guy in my lbs said to put a layer of electrical tape on the rim first, is this going to be ok with the rim tape?|

|and forget the electrical tape.
Never heard that one before, and I didn't just fall off the turnip truck!
There's even a superlight nylon rim tape available. The Velox is so thick that I wouldn't worry about the tape layer.
