thanks! i was actually looking to re-wrap the handle bars? any color suggestions on tape? what brand, in your opinion, works/feels best? i looked into deda and that seemed to be pretty popular and cost-effective, which was appealing to me since i'm a college student, haha

I wrap an old tube on the bars then cover with the new bar tape.

Takes up some road vibration.

You can pick the color.

Welcome to BF.
Kelley green bike? Gotta be either white or yellow bar tape.
