    Baby Blue cotton tape and handlebar pics inside!

    Old steel bars that I painted black cuz I didn't wanna pay for new chrome. Jonny was kind enough to cap the ends w/ stainless steel for me. I added star cut-outs and polished the ends. Sorry for the bad pics. I think these were made for a kid.....totally impractical. Anyone know where I can find baby blue COTTON bar tape????? Any help appreciated

    I guess I could call 'em.........their site ( and all other's I've found who carry Velox, etc) lists Light Blue as "discontinued"

    I buy Cateye cotton tape at my LBS. Can't find it on the Cateye site, though, so I don't know if they make baby blue.
    One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach -- all the damn vampires.

    have bought red and black from here... http://www.bicycleclassics.com/bartape.html

    they say they make a blue... not sure what the shade is, call them (that's the only way to order)

    couldn't you just dye some white tape? if you used less water with RIT or a straight up dye it doesn't seem like it'd affect adhearance

    Thanks for the suggestions....I decided to go with gray tape. I considered dying some, but it seemed way too Martha Stewart for a bicycle. Gotta draw the line somewhere.
