Red, white, and blue bar tape?

Does anyone know a source for red, white and blue bar tape? I know I have seen some somewhere, but darn if I can find it now that I am looking for it.
Thanks,
Raymond

Rainman, I think that Profile Design has an assortment of tape and I believe the Red White and Blue is available. I'll try to check this week and get back to you with a contact number.

Benotto make RWB tape. I've seen it at http://www.sjscycles.com but that's a UK e-biz outlet.
There's an article on bicycling .com at http://www.bicycling.com/daily/pod/pod_052001.shtml

have a look at their product of the day archives

Thanks for the site. Predictable take by the ever-vigilant Style Man. Obviously he does not watch the pros race on OLN. Every team pretty much has color coordinated bar tape. I guess Style Man doesn't WATCH racing; he IS racing.
Regards,
Raymond

Hey, you want to be a REALLY and TRULY patriotic bicyclist?

Get yourself a bicentennial model 1976 Schwinn Varsity. They are red, white, and blue with stars and stripes. They were made when the world was suffering it's first middle-east batterings including hijackings and oil shocks.

I have mine; complete with a stars and stripes saddle. This is THE time to be riding it when gas stations are gouging our fellow Americans with sky-rocket price increases.

Let's guide our fellow Americans to a path less dependant on foreign oil; bicycle our way to middle-east oil independance.

Yes, this would certainly be patriotic at the moment.

OK, for anyone with the nerve and desire who, like me, does not give a crap what Style Man or any of his disciples think, I found it! Not just red, white and blue, but STARS AND STRIPES red, white and blue Cinelli Cork tape. Check out
http://www.assosusa.com/bartape.htm
I ordered one each Stars and Stripes and splash. Yorick and Dolce will just have to fight over who gets to wear what.
Regards,
Raymond
