Apparently you can do this with cloth tape quite easily but wondered if there was a way to do it with gel tape. I spent about 3 hours today doing mine and I thought it looked pretty good. When I talked to my LBS he said the design wouldn't stay as it wasn't tight enough. This was my first time ever wrapping tape so I got lost on the clean start/finish parts. He redid the handles using just the red tape. Would it have stayed given what I've done and the next time I need to change tape, go for it? After watching the LBS do the ends, I think I could pull it off better.
