    Leather Bartape

    Hello, first time poster here. I am looking to buy some leather handle bar tape for my fixed gear bicycle to match a brown Brooks saddle. I found a website that was selling them, I think it was a small operation and the guy selling them only had about 3-5 at a time. Does anyone know about this? Thanks!

    Salsa gel cork tape is a good match as well.

    Yes this is it! Thanks you!

    I recently ran into someone who had it and the quality and feel was impressive, much better than the Velo Orange. But than again, it's twice as much as the Velo Orange.

    I don't understand the need for such insults, I was simply looking for a product that I couldn't find. Attacking random users does not make you cool or more knowledgeable.
