    Reflective Handlebar Tape

    I donít think this is made anymore but I thought Iíd ask. A few years ago I purchased some reflective handlebar tape (see attached images). I believe I got it from Cinelli but Iím not certain. This stuff works really well and Iíve got a new bike Iíd like to put it on but I canít find anywhere to buy some. Anyone know where I can purchase some?

    Thanks, Scott

    Looks like the Cinelli is no longer sold from a quick google, but I did find this:

    They do have glow in the dark tape though.

    You've got a bike, so you gotta move.

    I got some of that tape last year on Ebay, check there.

    I know you were happy with it, but I would not recommend it. The reflective part of the tape rubs off. It's decent bar tape though.

    Does it rub off everywhere, or only where your hands touch? It doesn't seem like the reflectivity is doing any good where your hands are anyway, so that shouldn't matter.

    Thanks to everyone who provided links for where to get this stuff. I did some searching on the web before but came up with nothing. Once again this website rocks.

    To answer the question about the reflective stuff rubbing off; yes it does but if you look at the pictures I included in the original post, it really only comes off where your hands rest the most. For my commuter bike this means 70% of the handlebars are still covered with reflective material.

    Thanks to all who responded!!
