It’s only a month old though & still boxfresh looking. It was also about £25.I'd no more re-use bar tape than I would a condom. There's something "Dirty" about it.
Yes, but the edges then face the wrong way on the drops and tend to lift slightly.Wrap from the centre outwards so you don't have to have the ugly and unnecessary finishing tape right in the middle in direct lie of sight. By going outwards you end up finishing at the bar end plugs which magically hold it all in place without resorting to sticky backed plastic.
Not had that problem on mine. Maybe just down to tension?Yes, but the edges then face the wrong way on the drops and tend to lift slightly.
I'll have you know I'm very relaxed....Not had that problem on mine. Maybe just down to tension?
Never had any problems with lizard skins, had the same tape on over a year and just recently rewrapped it after changing cables.The tape was re-used but was an absolute nightmare to peel off as it was Uber sticky. It never goes back on as good as the first time.
The new narrower bars are fantastic however.
