    yeah, why is it that everytime i fall i need to get new bar tape, so far my new bar tape has lasted through 2 falls (one involved a car and moderate speeds) but if i fall again, my bars are gonna get scratched up.

    Mine involved low speeds and no one around. If I fall and nobody is around to see/hear it did I really fall?


    Yeah, because again, I need new tape.

    17 bucks down the drain. That's why I gave up and use bicycle tubes instead.

    You use bicycle tubes? I didn't notice that on your bars. I am using tubes next time I wrap the bars. Now I just need to flat. I can't wait...

    I guess it's hard to pay for bar tape when you have redlight tickets to pay

    haha - indeed.

    yeah, it's super ghetto. gets your hands all black - not really a concern in the winter though.

    I saw this Cinelli in person last weekend. Yes, that's leather bar tape that's sewn tight to the bars.

    comfy, cheap, classy - pick two.

    I was riding home from the bar a couple days ago (maybe a little tipsy), got ran off the road by some idiot, and wiped out into a planter. My bar tape ripped plus a stick got jammed into my front wheel, knocking it a little outta true. Guess thems the breaks.
