That's why when I purchased my new bike, the first this I did was remove the white tape and installed black. I had many a bike with white tape, and it is always dirty no matter how much you clean it, and you have to continue to do so. Black tape = No cleaning!!!

Didn't watch the video but Dawn dishwashing detergent cleans greasy cinelli cork tape like new. It's really very easy.

As for the dirty grip tape reasoning, I like to show up to a restaurant diner with greasy/dirty hands because it makes me look like I've been working? It impresses the hell out of everyone! Can I hand you a slice of bread anyone, anyone?

I thought the video was extremely informative. Although I've never owned white bar tape, and very likely never will, I somehow feel that my life is now complete.
