I've been doing the inner tube bar tape thing for a couple years. But I normally use the tube without splitting it, just snip out the valve and wind it on! Overlap it just right and it's not lumpy. I do cover it with whatever's handy, I've used cork bar tape or cotton tape, but not hockey tape. (don't have any) Mostly to keep it from making my hands smell like inner tube. I like the squishiness and the larger diameter that this all winds up to, it's nice on long rides.
