    If you knew me thereís a more obvious reason for not being a weight weenie...

    Thanks though, I do like a bit of cushioning so I think Iíll look into something that just matches the color rather than leather.

    For about three weeks...then it will look like you've got a nice saddle and dirty white tape you haven't got around to re-doing yet!

    Not a fan of the tape, but I love the name!

    Just replaced some worn out Lizard Skins with Fabric Knurl tape. I like it. Looks good. Feels good. Comes with finishing tape that is actually better than electrical tape and decent bar plugs. And it has a silicone sticky strip, rather than a shitty strip of adhesive that is always a pain in the arse when you take tape off!

    No idea on durability yet, but it canít be worse than Lizard Skins.

    I used to be an Arundel Rubber Gecko guy. Not any more.

    Yeah, I always look for a silicon strip instead of adhesive - easier to fit and much easier to replace.

    I just bought a roll of 3M electrical tape which is meant to be great for finishing - Iíve been using the cheap local diy store type and itís not great. I was told that this has more stretch and better adhesive.

    Iíll let you know.

    Going back to Fizik 2mm tape. More than enough chunk, maybe too much.

    Had some Bontrager tape, promo that came free with renewal of Peloton magazine, sitting around for a couple of years.. Overhauled the 'C' bike today - 2001 Litespeed Tuscany that serves as rain/beach bike. Not familiar with this tape before, but a nice cushy texture and would be excellent for cross. Seems to have a significant rubber component. This particular roll has the word 'Peloton' on it repetitively. Doesn't look bad but hoping no one thinks I'm a Peloton (suburbanoid spin bike) douche. I now understand what social justice warriors mean by 'cultural appropriation'.
