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

Re: Bar Tape

bar tape came undone in the Top part I have a ride this morning after work, How can I fix this? Even the gel thing underneath came off. I have handy rubber bands and packing tape. Help.

packing tape will work, but electrical tape would be better.

No ride.

Edit: I don't have a spare tube but don't want to go for a ride.

It's impossible to fix. The tape is bonded to the bars at the factory.

You'll need a new Look.

Stay home. Then you won't need the spare tube either
