Comments about Brooks Preforated Leather Bar Tape:

I purchased this to match the B17 seat I purchased. I pondered the purchase due to the expense; was it really worth the cost vs. some other options?

First off, it was packaged very well but lacked any instructions for the installation. I assume Brooks believes if you don't know, go get it installed professionally. Well, that's not in my vocabulary. So I did it myself to great satisfaction but not without some confusion.

Secondly, one of my hesitancies was the fact I read that the bar end plugs were very fragile and the slightest bump would break them off. Well guess what? I hadn't even gotten in my first real ride with the new tape installed when my knee hit one of the plugs while mounting the bike. My new broken bar end plug hit the ground rolling away like it was on a prison break. Come on Brooks, is it a British thing that some things MUST be designed so horribly bad that everyone KNOWS it must be British product? When the proud designer of these plugs was standing there admiring these after an installation, someone should have walked up and thumped it with their finger just to watch the shocked horror....
