Strengths:    Be the only one in the paceline with barbed wire tape. Thick & dense.

Weaknesses:    I'm a fan of adhesive backed tape, this isn't. Surface of tape has a sheen and is more slippery than cork tape & Profile foam.

Bottom Line:   
Bought the tape 'cuz of the fun graphics. It seems a more firm than Profile, stands up better to abuse.

Strengths:    Cool looks and easy to apply

Weaknesses:    Hard to find, pretty pricey for what appears to be a fairly cheap tape. I don't expect it to last more than a year.

Bottom Line:   
I just got this tape because I saw the graphics on the web. It looks really cool! I put it on my bars last night and it's really easy and foolproof. Other tapes I've installed are adhesive backed to a goof is semi-permanent. Off-the-Front tape is foam backed. It's lightweight, cushy and cool. I added "barbed wire" and love it!

Fizik Microtex Bar Tape install?

After reading a few posts i've picked up some Fizik Microtex bar tape (black with stitching). There's perforations on one side of the stitching and I'm wondering if there's a correct or preferred way to wrap it - overlapping the perforations or the 'plain' side of the tape?Read More »
