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)

Handlebar Plugs

Been looking for a thread from a few months ago that linked to a site that sold a very large variety of end plugs, but coming up short. Anyone know of the site, or similar?

more importantly though...how do you end of the wrap so perfectly, i still have little pieces of the end not under the flap, i just could not get therm to stay under

You have to leave enough tape hanging over when you start the wrap to fold into the handlebar.
The plug then holds the folded tape in place.

I've got the skull and crossbones too, but they're on a mostly black bike... Picked up the Bianchi ones from there, too, but those won't be used until spring.
