Bar tape.

I wrapped the handlebars on my Peugeot yesterday. The bars are Ritchley make. I actually ran out of tape 3 inches in from the brake levers on both sides. Now I have done this job many times over the years so I do know what I am doing. The problem is simply that the tape is just too short a length. It is Velox Guidoline, carbon lookalike tape from Decathlon. It will have to do for now, but I have also today ordered two pairs of tape rolls from Hong Kong. When I get them I will re-wrap the bars. I just wish that the boxes or bubble packs that the rolls of tape are supplied in would specify on them the length.

Best tape ever was Benotto. Haven't seen it for years.

Next time I have to wrap bars I am going to try ice hockey stick tape. One roll at half the price of one roll of cycle specific tape will do a dozen bikes!
