Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

What bar wrap matches blue DP18s

No excuses, I just enjoy a well-color-coordinated bicycle.

They are this color:


Not my bike nor photo but the only one I could find. Thanks

I know, I too find that build rather heinous. But, as I said in my first post, it's not mine, only has the same wheelset. Unjustified e-hate makes me cry a little bit inside

Yeah I say take the wheels to your lbs and if the blue doesn't match then get white instead.

Try that. I have it on my bars...it's more of a royal blue than the picture shows. Worst case, you waste $2.84.

Match your handlebars to your saddle, unless you're going tarck then just get whatever neon bright color you can find that is the total opposite of your color choice.

Haha what saddle is that? My bike's almost all-white, including current tape, so I want some more color. So blue tape or saddle or 3/32" chain (which are impossible to find). SheistyMike, I think that blue is too bright. When I first bought the wheels I went to my LBS and bought the Profile blue tape, and it too is too light in hue.

Yeah, it's way darker than it is on the site. It's actually darker than my gp4000's.

Don't mean to be a pain, but Mike do you have any other photos, in natural light perhaps?

It is weird that the first post I agree with in this thread is Deathhare.

Why do you give this guy so much crap when he is just asking a question about bar tape. I bet you guys all rule at tarck bike.
