Does the wheelset comes pre tape for tubeless installation?


LightBicycle 2019/11/11

Hi Daniel, Our carbon fiber bike wheelset usually doesn't pack with tubeless tape if the tape is not selected during the configuration. Are you interested in this 650B fat bike wheelset? You can buy rim tape from us, then we will ship it together with your wheelset. Thanks, Lightbicycle
