Soma does a white bar tape, but because its EVA based rather than cork based it will be a bright finish, raather than the dull finish of most white tapes

If you had asked for Snow, Bone, Ivory, Linen, Eggshell, Vanilla, Cream or Ghost white, I may have been able to help but if you must have Pearl, you're on your own.

Ivory might do in a pinch. I'll get back to you if have no joy locating some with a pearlescent finish

Won't white bar tape go through a week or so pearly phase before turning dull creamy and finally grey/blackish after a month?

Only if you actually ride the bicycle. I suspect Rik just wants to look cool, sipping his Chai Latte, sitting next to a Pearl handlebar'ed classic Raleigh, outside the local coffee shop.

The Fizik superlight stuff (the synthetic leather "microtex" one) cleans pretty well as it is not porous like cork. It's quite thin though, depends how much cush you like in your tape

that and the vintage raleigh is held together with Ados F2 and is thus insanely dangerous to ride..... plus it was built by someone wearing a flat cap who belonged to an english trade union...... in the 1970's. WCGW?

Isn't that the same stuff that holds together any modern CF bike? I tell you, those flat cappers , when they weren't on strike or tea break where visionaries ahead of their time.
