  • seeing as my classic Raleigh only cost me £38!

    You were ripped off...


  • Cheers for the positive input there Platini

  • I went into Condor today and they have 3 different types of brown tape. Their own honey brown cork tape (£7ish). It pretty much matches with the honey brown of the Brooks saddle, if that helps. Then they have 2 colours of Fizik - honey brown and dark brown (£10.99). Again, pretty much correlating with the two browns of the Brooks.

    I like the look of the Fizik stuff but I reckon the Condor cork would be more comfortable.

  • I run the brown fizik which matches perfectly to a brown fizik aliante, looks sweet and there both super comfy.

  • So you don't find the Fizik bar tape a little firm? I like the idea of the Condor cork bar tape because I know it will be a lot softer. It may not last as long but I'm sure it would be more comfortable.

  • The guy took me o the shop's basement and told me to choose from a bin (about 50x50cm) - £5.

    Same Lamb Hide used for the saddle.
    This is just a test:

  • Bought some honey coloured brooks tape off ebay for 29.99 then polished it with black shoe polish to match the saddle. Looks alright I think....

    (sorry about the poor excuse for posting pics of me bike ;) )

  • Never apologise. This is a bike forum, we all want to see more bikes!

  • ^That Gazelle is shit hot!!!... I want that, now!

  • yep i just got some brown Fizik microtex off ebay for my current project and its quite nice

  • Anyone know of a brown bar tape that's darker than fizik antique brown? I've just bought some to match a brown brooks saddle and it's still too light

  • Bontrager do a Tobacco brown, which is nice.

  • Bumping this. Am after some brown cloth bar tape that will match an old Brooks saddle. It's for my ratty Claud Butler. Anyone have ideas where this can be found? Velox brown looks too light. Newbaums dark chocolate looks right, but can't find anywhere in UK to stock it. hmmm.

  • 🤔 Still searching if anyone has an idea?
