Does anyone start wrapping (taping) the handlebar at the inside point, nearest the stem, and going outward?
Everyone I know starts at the bar end and works inward, so that the job needs to finish with sticky tape around the last wrap.
Seems to me, if you do it the other way and use the bar end plug to secure the wrap, you can avoid the use of sticky tape. Okay, there's a bit to hold down the start of the wrap, but it is covered by the wrap.
Am I the only one who finds the sticky tape a bit unsightly?
