Which bar tape?
The cheap stuff that came on my B’twin is already very thin. So what stays plump and adds a bit of comfort? I have thick grips on my mountain bike I was hoping I could get a bit bigger on bar tape?Posted 5 years ago
this any good?
I like Fizik bar tape.Posted 5 years ago
For more comfort, you can get Fizik “bar gel” which goes underneath the tape. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=27914NorthwindSubscriber
I half-like my Fizik. It went on easily which is a bonus, and it’s durable. But it’s a wee bit edge-ey, you can really feel where the tape wraps are. I don’t like it without gloves. Still, good grip and comfort
Oh, also it’s fairly stiff so was a total balls to get into my bars at the end, but ymmv- I think the bars are quite thick. But the upshot was their end caps wouldn’t fit and actually getting a nice wrap-in was hard work.Posted 5 years agoBadlyWiredDogSubscriber
Stella Azzurra Tecno-Spugna – partly for the name, partly because it works and partly because they do a really nice sort of dark Prussian blue version. And the Easton stuff works decently ime.
I tried a set of under-tape gel inserts for a while, felt really odd and wrong to me, though obviously that’s just personal taste and I don’t have any… 😉Posted 5 years ago
