    a new grip/bar tape/grip application

    so I saw this on Pedalmafia.com and thought I would share it.





    and well because there is no way to order from Carnival in Japan.

    I did some research and found this


    click the image.
    it isn't as thick as a champ grip but as thick as bartap and looks kind cool with may applications.

    Seems like it'd be nice on some drops or horns but why the hell is it on that fork?

    because the fork was worse without it?

    steering with your fork is the new steering with your stem.

    having the fork protection is for when you lay your bike against a curb. other wise you destroy the paint on the fork.

    I dig it. Not the fork application, but as grips it looks fly.
    Sucks to your ass-mar!

    I never thought of that before. You could probably just use the stuff at home depot too right?

    Those track drops would look good if they did the sensible thing and covered the whole.

    you could use regular heatshink, but you might need to do a couple layers

    it made for fishing pole grip so I'm sure its grippy and grips when wet as well
    I like the idea of it covering entire bull horn

    Looks like its intended use is for fishing rods! Those pedal mafia guys always thinking.

    it shrinks up to 50% so I would say 45mm. it shrinks to 22mm. aren't bars 22.2mm?
    anything smaller might split i would imagine. read the info link on the page

    Shrinks up to 50%. You're better getting something closer to your bar diameter...

    In my experience with heat shrink you want it to just fit over what you are covering, then zap it with the heat ***.

    This stuff looks like it might be sweet though. Regular heat shrink wouldn't have the grippy-ness that you would want, but if this stuff is made for fishing rods I would imagine it has some good grip.
    Remove the head or destroy the brain.
