Bar Tape Question: cotton, stripes, etc
I'm thinking I want to switch out my risers for my drops on my crosscheck (again). Last time I had the drops on I had some black and yellow splash tape on there. I know no one likes splash tape, but I want a black and yellow color scheme. So, now I'm wondering what I can do to keep the color scheme but avoid splash tape.
I could attempt to do a harlequin wrap with cotton tape, but I'm sure I'd screw it up. Are there other patterns people do with cotton tape? Can I just layer two colors for a striped look?
I've never used cotton before, I know it's not gonna be that cushy. Are there any two-toned looks I can do with cork or gel tape? And if I do use cotton do I have to shellac it?
Lots of questions, I don't even know if people here will have any answers. But thanks in advance!
