"The tape complements my road bike well as it now has quite a vivid, yellow handlebar which looks good. It was quite easy to put on and bar ends that corresponded with the colour of the tape were provided. Furthermore, the tape is thick and well padded allowing better riding comfort on the palms of your hands. However, after about a year of usage, at one or two areas the coils of tape are coming apart revealing the black bar beneath. So with a fair rate of use, the Ritchey Pro Bar Tape has more of a finite lifespan than you might think."
