What Road bike bar tape?
Nope, I prefer it
Swapping bar tape from winter to summer ?????????
I swap my tape to match my outfits.
Lizard Skins, BTW.
Yes, why not?? At £25 or so a pop it's not a lot of money and not only that it's all in the feel ( I think anyway ) I can't abide tape that's too thick, so slightly thicker in summer because I don't wear gloves and thinner in winter when I do.. I've done P-R a few times and added gel strips under the tape once, and wished I hadn't, blisters around the thumb/palm so the following year it was back to thin tape and winter gloves, perfect.
Insulation tape ain't bar tape
To BB, it was just from the protection aspect if you take a slide on tarmac. Not that I ride on road, other than to link off road bits, but in my road riding days, many moons ago now in my teens, mitts certainly prevented the skin from my palms adorning the road surface on more than a few occasions.
