I recommend this product
ConsPrice, end plugs, not paired
ProsQuality, length, feel
As soon as I saw it, I knew this was the only tape that would do for my retro styled tourer/everyday ride. It is not the most cushioned tape, but feels beautiful in the hands. Too early to say how it will stand up to scuffs and the rain, but I am looking forward to seeing it gently mellow and age. I didn't use the end plugs as I have bar end shifters,I was glad because they don't look that robust. The strips are a very good length and there was plenty of spare even on my 46cm bars. I was a bit surprised that the two lengths were not paired, so the splicing went the same way on both strips making it difficult to mirror the application during fitting.

Consoutrageously expensive
ProsLooks superb, good lengths
I hesitated over spending 3 times more on bar tape than I did on bars! However, compared to other tapes it was quite easy to fit, and now it's in place it looks and feels wonderful, and will hopefully last long enough to justify the price. Both leather strips have splices in them, and the supplied bar plugs are not great quality.
