Plastic cable covers under bar tape
I was at the LBS today and noticed one of the bars had a wide diameter top making it almost flat but still round. Asked them if it was the bars or if they did something different to achieve this. He showed me a scrap of the articulated plastic that covers the cable and might have told me what it was but I forgot. I have been looking for the past couple hours for something like this and have not been aable to find anything. I am sure someone has seen this and knows where I can find it. They didn't have any in stock, he used the last of it on the last build up.

They're supplied with bar end shifter kits.
also supplied with Aero Brake levers , Back in the day before grooved bars were produced.
Thanks for the responses, I figured it was somehting like that I just couldn't come up with the right name or description of it. I think that I might try to carve up some foam like one of the other posters mentioned in a thread that I found when searching for info on this. I have a battery/wire cutter from studio for foam that I haven't used since then.
