  • I do like that, i guess its just 2 rolls of tape wrapped together?

  • yeah with like 1/2cm offset or whatever.

    probably harder than it looks as both will need to be pulled tight independently of eachother.

  • How you wrap around the lever makes my brain hurt, id like to try it on some track bars though, or maybe bullhorns.

  • haven't this been explained yet? pretty easy.

  • Ohh! yes that is very simple

  • Suppose you could do that with STI's too. Maybe.

    When wrapping cork/gel tape on bars with STIs do you guys tend to use the short sections that are supplied for wrapping around the STI clamp?

    I don't, find they make the tape too bulky, I have a method of weaving around the STI that negates it.

  • I use that little peice but cut it into 2 small pieces, theres usually a tiny gap when i do it so i just use it to cover that gap instead of the hole way around

  • I've done it with aero levers, but not STIs.

    You find the preferred lever position, put the cable outer in place and secure it firmly with electrical tape or similar. Then it is important to mark the position of the lever clamps as there's nothing to hold them in place when you remove the lever assy and bolt. Put the bolt back without the lever to hold the clamp in place while wrapping. Now, the first wrap above the clamps should be under the cable outer(s) and then the rest will go over them. the bar tape will hold on to the lever clamps untill you have reinstalled the lever. You can still do minor adjustements to the position.
    Until now I have always used the 2 small strips to avoid gaps, but from now on I will always do as above.
    Hope it makes sense.

  • tiny piece of white electrical tape under faceplates with cut out logos make them stand out quite nicely...

  • and black electrical tape covers up the white writing too:

  • I am thinking of going down the cloth tape/shellac route on my wife's Claude Butler mixte and my old British Eagle - anyone got an recommendations on where to purchase?

    Thanks

  • Condor in store or Neubaums online if you're feeling like treating her

  • Thanks Apollo, one roll per side or one roll per set of bars?

  • one per side, maybe even two if the bars are fat, not compact and wider than 44cm

    in which case the neatest place to switch is under lever hood

  • excuse the wife

    new Lizardskins 2.5mm (cotton underneath on the tops to plug the cable grooves)

    Always 'wrapped' mine around the STI since seeing this LizardSkins video

    copycat

    i could do with reversed though

  • Got a gt same as this - jejamescycles.co.uk/gt-gtr-se­ries-2-road-bike-id54660.html

    Thinking of doing a harlequin on it, would use cinelli grey, black, yellow or blue to do it

    Grey and blue? Black and blue? Blue and yellow? Black and yellow? Grey and yellow? Black, grey and blue?

    Just being silly? Just use black fizik/lizardskin?

  • Apollo I will pay you in fine coffee if you come to SE23 and wrap my bars.

  • i imagine he would have to take the geared bike to se23

  • watch it sweetheart, don't forget I'm in control of ££££ that belongs to you. :D

  • Just being silly? Just use black fizik/lizardskin?

    Just my opinion but I don't think harlequin looks good on modern bikes. How about fizik dual tape?

  • More importantly I don't think the tapered cork tape you looked at would work with harlequin?

    Have you tried a harlequin rap before?
