i personally hate the glue back because all the mess it leaves on the bar.

just learn how to rewrap the tape, it's not just the tape coming loose, cork material can stretch when used and you'll end up needing to rewrap anyway.

i like to tension the tape so it will stay in shape longer(min. over lap), but some rider perfer a more cushioned grip with more overlap(less overlap on road bike because
i ride with gloves but more overlap on fixie/city beater because i often ride without gloves, personal perferrance btw.)
