  • Tried using the search...this isn't really bike porn, there's a decent thread on tips for wrapping, this thread is for the art.

    We all know how a lovely build will look wrong with a bad wrap, wrong colour, bare bars or butchered Ourys on the tops of track drops.

    I pulled off what seems to be a decent wrap with some Fizik Microtex soft touch and I have to say it was one of the most satisfying parts of the build. Especially as was the first time I'd wrapped drop bars using gel pads and it is a part of the bike you are in constant interaction with.

    Next step when I get the opportunity: learn the harlequin!

    But also barwrappornworthy IMO:

    Feel free to post your own efforts!

  • i like this thread :)

  • I'm so getting Murtle to hook me up with some leather strips to practice ^^^^^

  • Damn right, love the first pic, like a christmas jumper on your bars!

    Whoa what's going on with the above bars^ that rogue brown stip in teh middle

  • missed that! >>>>>>>>>barwrapantiporrrrrrrrn

  • apparently it can take a week to do that wrap its so frustrating..

  • Is someone going to put us out of our misery and post a howto?

    Yeah, me: wastedlife.org/bike/harlequin­/index.html

  • whats that front brake in the tutorial pictures?

  • i just got a headache reading that, wrapping tape takes me long enough already, that would drive me nuts.

  • I think once you read through it makes sense. This sums it up pretty well:

    both tapes are simply wrapped around the bar in opposite directions with no overlap. In this way, each color is laid in an over/under alternating weave

    Christ knows how you do the three-way variant though

  • Basically the bars are wrapped twice, once by each colour with each colour going in opposite directions. You just have to alternate which one is on top at any point.

  • I really like the cotton and shellac look but I know it'd look stupid on my modern build. Maybe I can convince my girlfriend to let me have a go at it on her bianchi...

  • Is someone going to put us out of our misery and post a howto?

    Yeah, me: wastedlife.org/bike/harlequin­/index.html
