Strengths:    huge selection of colors, has a nicer feel, cushioning, and look then Cenelli bar tape.

Weaknesses:    Color isnt what i expected. I think it would be the case with most of the colors they have. So be careful which color you order. Also the bar end caps would not stay in.

Bottom Line:   
I've only used two other brand bar tapes this being the second best i have used so far. The Giant gel bar tape my bike came with has better feel and, cushioning to it.

Strengths:    Incredibly confortable non-gloved. Holds up quite well to my use.

Weaknesses:    Not too fond of how the sticky comes up during a re-wrap. Red color seems to attract dirt + grease easily, but, does come clean easily also.

Bottom Line:   
This is my first road bike post a mid 80's Raleigh, and I choose this tape based on review and colors. Its held up quite well, and I just wrapped my bars with a second package of tape (first set was badly damaged due to my carelessness.) I rode an MS150 with the tape only, and no gloves (I found it more comfortable to ride without the gloves) So, a one day century, and then 62 miles the next day with no hand pain.

Strengths:    Cheap.
Durable(For all versions).
Easy to find-they're almost anywhere.

Weaknesses:    easy to gather dirt(for the cork version).

Bottom Line:   
In the time period in using this bartape,I feel comfortable,but don't have any special feeling about it.I won't say they're quite superior to other bartape like Bikeribbon or Cinelli,Fizik(I think it's the best),etc...but they're cheap enough,and easy to find.

Campy Ultrashift Lever Handlebar Tape Routing...

Thought I would query the Campy contingent on how they route their handlebar tape just behind the top of the Ultrashift shifter body under the hood boot. Please see pic below. What I do is bring the bar tape up from below and shingle just the rear edge of the shifter body where the cable housing ... Read More »

Handlebar tape question

So here's my situation. I love the Fizik tape, but by itself it's too thin for me (I have very large hands). The two choices I'm considering are the Fizik gel pads underneath that tape, or another cork-style tape underneath a wrap of the Fizik. Anyone have any experience with the Fizik gel set-up? W ...
