saw a lemond in my LBS with some brooks leather bar wrap... looked really nice and really comfy, after getting broken in of course. anybody have any opinions on this stuff?
I put the Selle Anatomica on my Raleigh because it was half the price of the Brooks. But I wouldn't do it again. It isn't bevelled and the leather is rather hard. Not a big deal as I just use that bike for my short commute. But I don't think I'd like to spend a couple of hours on it.SleeveleSS said:I would like to get some as well. The site that sells the Selle Anatomica also sells leather bar tape. That and one of their saddles in a matching color (brown) would look great on my bike.
Dave, I'll disagree. The VO elk hide bar wrap is very comfortable, nice and grippy and provides a nice cushion on bad roads. When I installed the Velo Orange bar wrap, I used a single layer of hockey tape as an underwrap, as I do on all my bikes regardless of the type of bar tape I use.Dave Hickey said:I've used Brooks and Velo-Orange leather wraps... they both look great and wear well but they aren't as comfortable as padded cork or vinyl......
