Any idea on who stocks brown bar tape? To match my Brooks saddle, pipe and leather elbow padded herringbone jacket.
I know velo make some just havent found it here in oz. i had heard somewehre in melb has all the colours of the rainbow.
the leather brooks stuff is US$60+… it doesnt handle sweat or any sort of moisture well. looks great but rots pretty quickly. if it costs 3x as much i want it to last 3x as long
Just use the Brooks tape and shellac the fuck outta it…
“To match my Brooks saddle, pipe and leather elbow padded herringbone jacket”
what colour is your pipe and jacket… and brooks? brown or honey?
that velo-orange site is a good’n, especially if you want some bags to match your swankiness. check riv-bike.com too… or is it rivbike.com? cant remember… their bags are the nicest i’ve seen, esp the saddle bag.
and i really like the toshi brown tape, but it too is exy. kookie has it. i like its feel a lot better than the brooks stuff. its a good match for greased up honey brooks.
White tape + Brown RIT dye? found at most supermarkets.
saddle is honey coloured. i have old ‘almost’ matching velo cork tape but it is super old and tatty… just wish i knew where to source velo tape… only do OE i think (scored the tape when i used to work for a bike co)
ok, sourced some through the Soma folk in SF!
