    Crossed bar tape?

    I found a link somewhere that gave a how-to for criss-crossed bar tape (Kris/Kross?), but now I can't find the page again. Has anyone else seen this?
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    Damn you guys are quick. Another 10 minutes of trying other terms in google lead me back to rivendell where I first saw it. Is it as hard as it looks?

    Because steel nittos aren't heavy enough on their own.

    True, but that's not the point.

    In other news, Ruffy Tuffy tires don't seem especially ruff -or- tuff. Stupid flat!

    If those tires say one thing to me, it's "shenanigans."

    I found it to be a *****. I started out practicing on a set of OK bars, but decided to wait 'till I got the perfest bars (which were recently bought out from under me, ahem, mr. or ms. red alligator skin covered fiamme owner). The problem was, I am doing black crossed with black. It is hard to see which layer is right. Colored would be much easier.

    The holland won't fit anything bigger than a 23, either.

    Hmm.. I wonder if I could shoehorn a 32-559 wheel in there.
