    Is the Supacaz stuff no good? I just wrapped my bars with it and had a first ride yesterday. It wrapped well and doesnít feel bad.

    Depends which one, in my recent experience.

    I had a ‘bling blue’ (or similar such nomenclature) version that felt a bit weird but acceptable if dry (I plan to use this again), and I’ve had the gold tape which was actually ok, if expensive. The purple tape I had from them was *awful*, though. Sticky in the dry and deathly slippy when wet or sweaty.

    My comparison of Supacaz is the price/feel to my favourites being Cinelli cork, Deda and now Pro (Shimano). I personally change bar tape like underwear, it’s a disposable product that I feel shouldn’t be stupidly expensive. IMO it’s just bar tape, the Silca’s and Supacaz etc are just ripping us off. Leather bar tape is a different story though.

    thats fair enough - North of $35, the Supacaz stuff isn't cheap. I tried the Fabric Knurl tape recently, at around $30 but the knurl was too textured for my liking. Conversely, when its wet I felt it was pretty slick so that was a lose / lose / lose for me. I did like the feel of Arundel Gecko fur, which was the right price around $20 but it seemed to break down more quickly than i would have liked.
