    Neat new bar tape...

    ..at least for me. Deda makes a 'carbon fiber' bar tape that isn't, but it sure looks good on my Calfee!

    Whats the cost of this versus "regular" tape? Also does it feel any different or is it just looks?

    I believe it costs about $12.00. The feel is slightly different with bare hands, smooth but not slick or slippery. It has good grip with and without gloves.

    Dave,

    Nice look for the Calfee, for the Kirk I suggest the
    Stella Azzurra tape.

    Marty:

    On the Kirk I found 'Brick Red' Cinelli tape to be almost a perfect match for the 'honey' Brooks B-17.

    That's cool, but I'm too cheap.

    I'll stick with using my old tubes.
