base tape on tubulars coming away(4 posts)

base tape on tubulars coming awaykiwi lad

I have a vittoria and a clement tire, on both of them the 2 or 3 mm of base tape that extends above the rim is coming unstuck from the the tire. Is this ok and normal? can I glue it back onto the tire with superglue or similar? Both of the tires have only done 1000 km or so.

Thanks, and happy new year!

If you ever have to patch the tire, you'll risk destroying the chafing tape when trying to remove it. Rubber cement is the answer.
