Large profile rubbing strake / Bump Strip

??? Anyone point me in the right direction to where I can pick up a length of bump strip for the front of my rib and ?? I am eventually going to replace the lot.

So far I cannot find anything on the net to buy it from so any site suggestions would be good, cheers Dave

One of the major manufacturers is Wilks -- you could try them although I don't knw if they sell direct to the public.

Henshaws stock and sell a variety of parts and materials for tube repairs and are always very helpful.

Other possibilities would be the manufacturer of your RIB, another local RIB manufacturer, or one of the ther tube makers.
