So I bought myself a nice Bianchi track bike, and I don't want it to walk away. So far I've just used it for to and from work (goes inside with me) and 8am rides to get PBR and Jameson. I also don't want to damage the paint when I'm locking it up (already saw some green from it rubbed onto my lock).
I noticed that a lot of the photos of Bianchis here are wrapped in black electrical tape - I'm wondering if this works well, and if it takes off the paint when you remove it. One of the reasons I bought a new bike is the last bike (older Ross road bike) I rode got stolen for about 24 hours. They threw out the fixed Surly on the back and replaced it with something that was probably off a huffy. They also wrapped most of it in tape, then left it at the White Castle accross the street from where they stole it - IDIOTS!!!!!
When I took the tape off, it took a lot of the paint and decals. Then I rode it all winter and it's covered in rust....
I really don't want that to happen to the new bike - anybody have experience wrapping black Bianchis in electric tape?
