Any recommendations whether it be what to use or what not to use ?

Thanks, Jim.

I always preferred using rim cement. Taking a tub off with tape often ended up with the tape in a
complete gooey tangle if the tape chose to remain attached to rim or tub in various places around
the wheel.

I agree. The problem I found with tape was that if (when!) I punctured and had to change tubs, the
tape would ALWAYS be stuck to the tub, and so I'd be putting a replacement tub onto the rim with
very little 'stick' - never carried spare tub tape with me :-( With rim cement, the rim stayed nice
and tacky - as did the tub.

Sounds like glue's the way to go.

Thanks chaps, Jim.
