It's not bad, but I wouldn't put it on anything that would see much rain.
Well then I hope for your sake you don't live in Washington as I do ;)

We can be honest, right? Bling bar tape is OK, but those cages!

Al Czervik: Oh, this is the worst-looking hat I ever saw. What, when you buy a hat like this I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh?
(looks at Judge Smails, who's wearing the same hat)
Al Czervik: Oh, it looks good on you though.

I nominate this for understatement of the year. I have never been tired from wrapping bars until now. You have to pull it really, really tight to make it lay flat. I rode on some really rough gravel today and I didn't feel like it was slippery (I was kinda surprised, though)

I like the white cages. I guess I could go with some white metal ones of some sort, but those have done well on some pretty crappy terrain, so I'm not in a hurry to go to something else.

i got those fancy lance cages when he was winning that big bike race and although cheap in appearance, they lasted a long time and didn't whistle in the wind (of illinois) like the elite cages did...

anyway if you're going to rock the plastic cages you need to go purple or pink.
