    Nice product, and you can't beat the price. It went on easy but I didn't use the included finishing tape instead I opted to use electrical tape.

        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.

        Seemed short... could be my fault.

          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!

            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.

              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.

                      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.
