no chance, i swear i almost died when i had randos on the back. gatorskins stay grippy in the wet, randos are barely even grippy in the dry!

Not too sure how popular this film is or how many people have seen it, but I watched it with my dad when I was a kid, He randomly managed to get a hold of a copy of it on DVD and I watched it again the other night.

Some really sick bike races in it.

Personally I dont think the trailer does it any justice, but check it out anyway.

Anyone got any recommendations when it comes to bartape? Preferably unbranded and black. Fizik tape seems pretty good, anyone ever used it/know someone who has used it? Any good?

I've just got some Cinelli cork stuff. Comes in loads of colours, 'nice feel' and doesn't break the bank. Bit branded but subtle.
