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)

Nothing your naughty lawyer's mind is thinking of.

Only electrical tape goo and bar tape goo.

how many more times are you going to re-tape your bars? Or is this to match tomorrow's ensemble?

Unless you filmed at porn around it, that's TMI.

Any suggestions for getting off the goo?

Not sure it is the recommended process, but degreaser always works for me. And if that doesn't do it, I usually use the double entendre method, i.e. rub it off with my thumb.

The thicker the goo the sweeter the ride...

That much aside, try either "goo gone" or valve oil.

WD-40 works too. Just remember like disolves like. i.e organics disolves organics and aqueous dissolves aqueous. OK it's not that simple but whatever. Deal with your own goo!
