Bulk handlebar wrap/tape

Does anyone know of a source for bulk (25 ft., 50 ft., or 100 ft.) rolls of handlebar wrapping tape? It would be great to wrap a road bar with desirable/even spacing/overlap without running out of wrap/tape because the "pre-cut" lengths are bare minimum.

Hmmm... I don't know where to get bulk tape but it sounds like a really good idea. I hate it when I'm wrapping a large 44 cm bar and don't have enough tape for the way I like it!

Have you tried contacting a handlebar tape manufacturer like Cinelli or Nashbar to see if they can sell you tape in bulk?

Cinilli sells a 25' roll to bike shops. Maybe a bike shop could order it for you.
