Was thinking of putting some blinging white bar tape on my Langster However as i commute on it, its sure to get a tad dirty, anyone got some good cleaning tips ? Does anyone else for that matter use white bar tape ?
Sounds strange but Bike spray or wd40 works really well at cleaning white cork tape. I've been laughed at before for this suggestion (and no doubt will be again) but it really does work. The tape on mine is almost as white as the day it was fitted a year ago.
If you use washing up liquid you really have to rinse them quite well or you'll be riding home with 'foamy' bars at the first sign of rain.
I use white bar tape matched to a Spec Toupe white saddle. however, it is on my summer bike. It looks good. I keep it clean with normal kitchen cleaner. Spray it on and is cleans off pretty easily. I do my bike cleaning in the kitchen, so the product is easily to hande.
