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!

Cotton Bar Tape

Other than the classic look and sweet harlequin wrap patterns that it is conducive to, is there any other benefits to using cotton bar tape? I've got a Fuji America I'm slowly customizing and I'd like a cool look for my bars but not at the expense of functionality.Read More »

Getting ready to build up my new Impulso frame and need some Celeste bar tape. Been looking around and it seems like there are wide variations of color for what is listed as "Celeste". Maybe it's just the photograph. Any recommendation on an authentic Celeste color bar tape.Read More »
