    Comments about Brooks Perforated Leather Handlebar Tape:

    Just put maroon tape on a new build after I powdercoated a Schwinn Traveler and put maroon decals on it. It looks unbelievably good. Other than that, its leather so its not very cushy. I did a thin wrap with cork tape on the bar tops and wrapped over with the leather and it worked out fine. It's not too hard to wrap as long as you pull the tape tight. I'm pleased with the result. The only beef I have with it is that both tapers are cut in the same direction. That means if you use the tapers on both sides you have to wrap the tape in the same direction instead of opposite directions, which is just plain stupid. Instead I wrapped one side with the taper and then cut my own taper on the other side thereby shortening that length of tape by about 6 inches. Luckily, I'm using a Nitto Randonneur bar and its not that wide so I had enough tape for the whole bar. It wouldn't work so well with a wide bar. All told its very pretty, the quality is good, the splices are nicely done and not so noticeable and I expect this to last for a long long time. At this price its a great deal. I'd have given five stars but for the taper issue.
