1. The tape wraps around itself once and keeps itself in place, if you wrap in the correct direction. For right side, clockwise as seen from behind bike, opposite for left side.
2. Pull the tape very tight at that critical turn and it won't gape around the protruding cable. If it does gape, sew it tight with thread.
