Customer review of this product:
Newbaum's cloth tape
by Dave H. of Bloomington, IN on August 18, 2020
Newbaum's Cloth Bar Tape, Maroon
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high
This tape is fairly robust and slightly higher thread count than others like Velox. The adhesive backing makes it easy to apply.
The adhesive backing has a tendency to stick to itself when wrapping. I used four rolls for my bars because I like a thicker pad for my hands. In a few places the adhesive made the wrapping a bit difficult, like under the brake hoods where it tended to roll over onto itself.
Even with the difficulties in wrapping my bars it seems to stretch sufficiently to get a nice even application. I am optimistic that this tape will wear well and give a nice comfortable ride. Since this is my first experience with it I am going to wait for a verdict.
