Hi Ashleyford, I had tried this before on another bike years ago and made a hash of it.
But this time it was no problem with the plastic applicator supplied with the rim tape. If you have the balance weights on the rim of the wheel it stops the applicator running round the rim when you get to the weights.
Solution was to cut of the lip on the applicator and hold the tape and applicator steady in the same position while you get someone else to turn the wheel slowly.
End result was brilliant and well pleased.
