      Comments about Nashbar Deluxe Handlebar Tape:

      This is some really nice tape at a reasonable price. I got the yellow. The bight color helps with visibility. I've had several compliments on the color, but have had a hard time keeping it clean.
      I did have one of the end caps pop off, but I think that was my own fault with how I wrapped my bars. I should have left about 1/2 inch overhang on the end. If this is your first time to wrap your bars, I recommend wrapping it once without removing the sticky side of the tape as a practice.
      I would get this tape again without question.

          I use two layers of tape on my road handle bars. There is enough material supplied to do this as a second layer (just). Lasts a whole year for me (2-3
          K miles).

            Use the Nashbar handlebar tape on all my bikes. A solid product. The tape is long enough for wider bars (I have 46 cm bars).

              used it to cover my new oversized ergo handlebars.
              Went on easily, without over stretching. Seems to stay in place, and not ride down the bars when riding on the tops.
              Good price for the quality of the tape. I'll buy some more when I need it.

                Comments about Nashbar Deluxe Handlebar Tape:

                I put this bar tape on fixed-gear that I built up a few months ago from the Nashbar Nekkid frame. I use the bike for work, and I burn through handlebar tape as a result. This tape wraps easily and holds up just as well as 20+ dollar big-brand tapes. Its almost as bombproof as the Nekkid frame. The only downside is that, like all cork tape, it's nigh impossible to clean, so it will be gray within a month or so if you get a light color(I got white to match the parts on my work bike). However, for under ten bucks, I could not care less.
                Bottom Line: I love this tape, and plan to put it on my other bikes once their tape wears out... but I wont buy white.

                  Comments about Nashbar Deluxe Handlebar Tape:

                  Bought multiple times. It's cheap & gets the job done. When your tape wears out, just throw on a new set. Won't last more than a season as the material will deteriorate. It's got a plastic-y feel to the foam. Careful when your wrap as it's not as stretchy as name brand foam. Cushion is tolerable but not so spongy & dampening for vibrations as more expensive tape. Nice that they're not branded - no tacky logos on the bar end plugs or tape. Good color selection among the assortment.

                  this is as good as any tape I have used. Has a thin glue strip on the back that really holds it in place. Easy to put on: just stretchy enough, and has nice feel to it.

                    I bought this for my non uci tt bike and the value is unparalleled! Is stretches and wraps the bars very nicely and has outstanding softness and comfort. The amount of tape included goes for days! In one package I had enough to wrap my bars and bar extensions with left overs! The only "downfall" is for the first week after your ride your hands smell like moss and tree bark, but once that fades away this tap is bottom line outstanding with an even more outstanding price! Stop reading reviews and just buy it!
