by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat low

Pros

Great feel, comfortable on long rides, and looks awesome.

Cons

The cork caps can break off easily. I had to order replacement caps.

Other Thoughts

The bar tape is great. I do receive quite a few compliments as I ride a vintage bike.

StarStarStarStarStar Great feel and look. Fades over time.

Pros

Great look
Good grip and feel
Installation is easy
Outlasts cork or gels

Cons

Fades in sun faster than I'd like
Kind of expensive
Doesn't match Brooks saddle color and isn't even very close. It doesn't clash with it though.

Other Thoughts

I would buy again and love the feel when riding. I wish it was more colorfast and matched the saddle colors better.

Bought them for the look and found them to be surprisingly comfortable. Also very pleased with the durability of the leather. I've re-wrapped them several times and they still look great.

Pros

Match this bar tape with a Brooks Pro saddle and make it look like the rolling piece of art that it is. This tape works as advertised, you won't regret it.

Other Thoughts

Come to Iowa City to see the bicycle as art exhibit. Start saving your money because you know you will want a custom frame that goes well with your Brooks saddle and tape.
