    I never knew that someone could be a master at wrapping bars. Thanks for the headsup.

    Actually I think the real masters at bar wrapping at at Conrad's in Tudor City. I've never had bars wrapped by them, but I've heard you can specify down to the millimeter how far from the stem you want the wrap to end. And they wrap it without finishing tape.

    But Arone is pretty good at wrapping bars.
