Velo Orange elkhide bar wrap waterproofing

Hey all,

Just finished wrapping up my bars with Velo Orange's elkhide bar wraps. Took hours but it's worth it (so far). Wondering if anyone else has these and what they did, if anything to waterproofing, what works best, etc.?

How come it took hours?

Anyways, Any wax will do. Me, I like Minwax paste finishing wax (furniture wax). It is a harder wax than most. I have found that it is better at protecting high wear areas such as handlebars and saddles.

Best thing to keep yours looking nice is to wear gloves.

Use a wax designed for keeping leather boots waterproof. Ledergris a good one.
