The braking surfaces of the rim wear with use. As the rim wears, a void will appear in the braking surface. At this stage the rim should be replaced.
Two rim tapes are avaliable:
QRIMTAPE-SW blue rim tape for single wall rims used on bikes produced before 2013
QRIMTAPE-DW yellow rimtape for double wall rims used on bikes from the start of 2013

Where a one or two cross pattern is used it is important not to ‘interlace’ the spokes.
The outside spoke (grey, fig. 1) should cross over the top of the inside spoke.
Interlacing the spokes will put undue stress on the spokes and cause premature spoke failure.
