Best Bar Tape For Sweaty Hands

Postby AgrAde on Sun 14th Oct 10:17am

I'm starting to use my road bike again, and need to solve the problem I've had with this thing since forever. My bar tape is shit.

Any recommendations for thickish, soft tape that's good for vibration that doesn't get slimy when it's sweated on? Bonus points if it comes with plugs that stay in the bar real nice like.

No recommendations other than full finger gloves ;)

Yeah, fair comment. But I've had some great stuff in the past, really nicely damped foam tape that was super grippy. Can't remember what it was though! And it was stolen with my last bike...

The cheapest Wiggle stuff is great at $8 NZ.

Wrap some tape around the plugs then put them in or glue them in. :)

I could’ve sworn I’d mis-quoted that!
Joke fail...
