what made the Cinelli tape that much better than the Fizik? i've heard some good stuff about Fizik tape..MerlinAma said:I used Cinelli cork gel tape for years. Then last year, I built up a new bike and decided to try Fizik tape, which I left on all year.
It "lasted all year" as I have several bikes to spread the miles over.
Anyway, last week I put new Cinelli cork gel tape on that bike and rode it 68 miles on Saturday.
Wow. Why did I leave the Fizik crap on there so long? I guess I'm too cheap to admit my mistake but now I know. Some things work and shouldn't be experimented with.
It wasn't the looks, it was the feel.Andrea138 said:Mr. 138 has had the same metallic gray Fizik wrap on his bars for about two years now, and it looks the same as it did the day I put it on!
+1 here. i use the fizik black mircotex tape and really like it too...i raced in the rain this sunday and grip was greatAndrea138 said:Yeah, the Fizik is not very padded, but I think the grip is fabulous. I've (successfully!) sprinted in the rain on it. I save the padding for my gloves.
