    Comments about Nashbar Handlebar Tape:

    Excellent kit for rewrap and I've used mine as an extra wrap on drop bars to secure some extra padding to relieve some numbing issues. Since I haven't re-wrapped in a long time, the steps were unclear. No instructions are included in the kit, but a quick online search will turn up plenty of advisors to illustrate what good technique should be and how the kit's pieces are best used. The tape is heavier and of higher quality than I expected--nice surprise since most supplies like this kit usually have Chinese origins and skimp on quality/durability to keep cost low. I've been using my re-wrap for several weeks (~20 rides, 50K per) and the setup is performing very well. I'd buy again.

      Comments about Nashbar Handlebar Tape:

      I previously used summit cork tape which was OK new;but after hours of use the tape would become too thin and wear fast..but this nashbar tape is much better with this extra cushioning and much better feel I noticed the difference right away. I'll be back!

                  The wraps went on very easy after I watched a few videos online. I've had them on for about two weeks and they seem to be very durable. The black and white camo pattern is great, too.

                  both the tape and the handlebar fillers were poor - fell out/unwrapped. worth it to spend more.

                    Comments about Nashbar Handlebar Tape:

                    Very nice feel with plenty of padding. That may explain why I thought it may be a little short. I have used this on several bikes and have found it to be consistantly well made and durable. This time I may have overlapped it a little too much or not stretched it as tight, so I barely had enough to complete the wrap on 42cm handlebar... but, it sure feels good!

                      Comments about Nashbar Handlebar Tape:

                      I'm pretty happy with this tape, the length was good (more than enough) and it's thicker than I expected for the price. It is a cheaper foam, it's lightweight. It's not going to last five years. If you are fixing up a bike for low cost or replace tape regularly (perhaps every 500 to 1000 miles) the price is right and this is a quality product. I use white and it gets dirty no matter the cost of the tape, I'd rather just replace it every spring with new tape.
