Looking for brown handlebar tape

Hi all,

I'm looking for brown handlebar tape to match a honey Brooks.

-- don't want leather
-- don't want clothe
-- Shellac not right for this project

Actually, I was looking for the Fizik Microtech brown. I've found it for sale in the UK, but not the US.

I welcome you suggestions.

You can order direct from Fizik though it'll cost you:

Another option is Soma's "thick and zesty" tape, which seems to come in brown:

Just got an order from PBK today.

Paid about $11.00 for honey brown Microtex.

Haven't installed but it looks like it will work well on my TREK.

Matches pretty ok with Brooks Swift honey brown.

Has anyone tried tennis or golf grips?

Pro Bike Kit? I couldn't find the brown tape on the site. Must be doing something wrong.

Doh, senior moment!!!!

Ribble, not PBK. Had two orders and mixed them.

Sorry!

Here's the correct link:

http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/sp/roa...pe/FIZIHBTP200

In stock this a.m.

Looks nice, feels great.

Thanks. That's the best price/shipping charge I've seen yet.
