Handlebar Tapes

Handlebars usually have tape or grips to provide grip and comfort. In general, handlebars which have one riding position have grips, and handlebars which provide several use tape. Applying conventional tape is something of an art. A small length (about 2 inches) is cut and tucked behind the brake lever clamp, otherwise a small V-shaped bare patch may be left when the main tape is applied. Taping then starts at the open end of the handlebar, leaving some overlap which is later tucked in and secured by fitting an end plug. Care should be taken to keep the overlaps neat and as even as possible. A figure-of-eight is made around the brake lever clamp and then taping continues up to the "tops".  Ideally, the loose end of the tape should be in such a direction that twisting the bars backwards tends to tighten rather than loosen the tape. It is then secured with a couple of turns of electrical insulation tape.
