      Replacement of fabric tape on 30+-year old touring bike. Removing old tape was more difficult than installation. Perfect length, even while using "figure-eight" wrap over brakes rather than short piece wrapped under bar.

              Comments about Nashbar Handlebar Tape:

              I have the Carbon Fiber Nashbar road bike that I absolutely love but the handle bar tape used was very thin. So I upgraded to this. I had never wrapped a handle bar before but it was very easy. In fact I actually did it the morning of the first day of RAGBRAI. Works great has great cushion for my hands looks sharp went on easy. Had to use some electrical tape to finish because I didn't think the strip they give you would be enough but who doesn't have electrical tape on their bike when riding. At this price I may change the color often.

                Refurbishing 25 year old 12 speed road bike and bought this tape to replace old dry-rotted tape that was on the bike. This tape not only met my expectations but exceeded my expectations! Can't beat the price for awesome quality product. Yee Haw and I'm thinking this old bike will be all that much faster with this cool looking tape (camo pattern) I'm sure to be the envy of all other riders out there with a lesser tape on their bars. And the camo pattern is perfect for my stealth trips hunting in the wilderness of scenic Kansas....Buy this tape and be cool like me!

                Comments about Nashbar Handlebar Tape:

                The NAshbar bar tape is a very good quality at a bargain price. Beware of those who say there isn't enough tape to wrap a bar with gel pads underneath as I always use the Nashbar gel pads (also highly recommended) on the tops of the bar. Many people
                don't stretch the tape adequately during the whole process and this leads to tape run out and slippage on the bar as it gets used. A tight wrap will solve all problems so just be careful you don't stretch it so much it tears. This tape stretches as good as any I've tried too so it is very foolproof when applied correctly. Also, use 3M Super 33+ electrical tape for finishing instead of the cheap vinyl strips included as it stretches better, has much stronger adhesive, and better weather resistance. If you don't like the gloss, try Utilitech Pro which is matte.

                  This tape is very easy to use: it stretches just enough to apply around the bends of a road handlebar, it sticks well, and it does not rip when being applied. Once it's on, it is comfortable for hands to rest on, and is grippy enough so hands don't slide off. There is nothing to improve about this tape!

                    Firstly, I'm in love with the price for this tape. Hard to beat. Love with the color too. I got the black/white/grey marble. Pretty cushy feeling too (3mm). Time will tell how it holds up, but I'm thinking it'll last me the summer pretty easily.

                      THIS IS JUST ENOUGH FOR A WRAP FROM EACH STI LEVER TO THE END OF MY BARS. I OVERLAP MY TAPE CLOSELY AND I KNEW THAT WHEN I ORDERED IT. If YOU WANT THICK CUSHIONS ORDER TWO KITS.IT IS STILL A GOOD DEAL, PURCHASING TWO.

                          I needed a tape that I could weave to create a crosshatch pattern on my handlebars. The black and white tape looks great. Not too expensive if the job did not turn out right.
