You could use the linked rim tape with a tubeless ready tyre, but you'd have to use a tube since it's not tubeless tape. Tubeless tape typically has a sticky side and sticks to the rim causing an air tight seal. Schwalbe Tubeless Rim Tape would be the tubeless equivalent of the tape you linked. It's normal for a tubeless ready tyre to be a tighter fit (and ...

Yes - your rear tyre has failed internally through being run under-inflated, combined with the heat generated on the roller surface. As such that tyre is no longer suitable to ride on the road. Indoor Trainers are hard on rear tyres - at least the ones that use a roller setup to interface resistance with the tyre. There are roller-specific rear tyres ...

Bontrager has a one-piece rim strip that are designed exclusively for their own rims. Here is a link that's ...
