This is all questions that I am dealing with at the time as well. A variable that is not being mentioned is what tire is being used. As long as we are considering minor details, whatever the base tape is made out of I would think play an important role in the bond. I personally have been doing a lot of mountain trails and other riding on my Easton EC90slx wheels with Tufo cubus tires and only using the tape to hold them on. I check the bond each ride and all seems great. I even raced the cross bike in a mountain race. No tires rolled.
I got on here to see what people had to say about tufo tape and other tires than tufo. what I read is that the success there is hit and miss. My experience is that Tufo on Tufo on clean carbon easton rims is a good option.
