handlebar tape length.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

handlebar tape length.

hi, ive got a simple question. what is the average length of one side of bar wrap? i like my wrap thin and found tennis grip to cost a few bucks, but each grip comes in lengths of about 41" and i dont know if that is long enough to cover one side.
