Then it's clear to me that you need to go with red/ white/ blue in that case. It can be done, I think tapeworx does it...

With that paint job, you crossed that line a looooong time ago!

It looks sweet, not saying otherwise, but adding r/w/b rim tape won't put it over. Photochop that .

call me retarded....but since the rim stripes are so cheap....i may just put red on one side, and white on the other. look at it for a while, and then make a decision.

I actually thought about this too, since I think it'll look great with your bike. Maybe not the red stripe, though, since it may end up looking more pinkish with the large area of white surrounding it. But maybe a blue stripe?
