- Reccomend me some good copter tape!
- Jolly Green GiantMember
Looking for some good copter tape for my carbon road bike.I`ve previously used helitape from http://www.helitape.co.uk but whilst good on the mtb,its a little too thick to mould to the contours of my road bike and a bit too visible for visible areas like the top tube.
So looking for something,relatively thin and easy to shape.
Suggestions please?Posted 6 years agolotus777Member
i used this on my carbon mountain bikePosted 6 years ago
its virtually invisable.
alternatively get some genuine 3M stuff off ebaymotivforzMember
Tesa tape is immense stuff. We use it in formula student, and although expensive at £25 a roll, it is ridiculously good as tape. Doesn’t tear/leak/abrade/slip, and is nice and formable for contours.
Would probably do a good job as helitape, although it may not look as good as proper stuff, and so not sure if it would meet your need. It’s a satin black cloth look, doesn’t look bad with our carbon fibre, but I would have thought transparent would look better.Posted 6 years agoouchMember
I have used stuff by paragon tapes, on ebay:
Not bad for 8.79 IMO, and it applies well, although I haven’t tried anything elsePosted 6 years agocurvatureMember
I have used the Tesa tape and some 3M on my Five.
3M is cut more accurately and has a nice shiny finish
3M yellows after a while which doesn’t look good on a white frame or forks
Tesa tape is a lot thinner BUT the edges seem to attract more dirt than 3M
Tesa tape doesn’t yellow so on a white frame is a better bet than 3MPosted 6 years ago
