I'm a bit tired of paying Fizik or Lizard Skins £20 a hit to tape my bars.
Anyone used anything good from the cheap guys that's a bit like the DSP/Tacky stuff?
Or just general recommendations?
I recently put this on the Lynskey : http://fabric.cc/shop/tape/knurl/
Got it for £15 in Sigma I think, not sure if that is cheap enough.
Also used this in the past which is a bit like the lizard skins sticky stuff but cheaper:
Prefer the Fabric tape though.
The lifeline stuff from Wiggle is really good and super cheap. I have it on all my bikes.
I use Zipp CX.
I've also used the Planet X stuff. It's not bad. But then I wear gloves as well.
+1 for fabric stuff. Little bit thick (I like the thin lizard skin stuff) but better in the wet than LS. And cheaper.
I've heard good things about the wiggle stuff too.
I told you white was a bad idea...
Lifeline stuff is about 80% as good as LS for cork tape monies
Cinelli bar tape is pretty good.
Be like me and buy the Italian flag stuff.
I like to ride bare back.
