Harlequin wrapping your bars
« on: October 26, 2013, 08:16 »
OK time to squeeze into your skinny jeans, put on a button up shirt that is way too tight, fix yourself a flat-white, put on a pair of these..



...even though you don't need glasses,

..and do this to your handlebars..

    Jesus... that's SKILLED! haha... I'm not one to carp on about bartape as my winter-bike isn't taped up yet despite me riding it... ok, maybe just from the tops to the levers...  :shh

    Harlequin wrapping bars looks awesome but is a thorough PITA! I did a few times on my track bike when I was younger and it takes time. The other thing is that you can really only do it with soft cloth bar tape and it needs a coat of varnish or shellac to seal it. This means it isn't the most comfy surface for your hands.

    But it does look REAAALY awesome! :D
