How does handlebar wrapping go? I'd think that most products like Cinelli would be way too short.

the fat bump is only in the middle. the rest of the bars is the same diameter iit's always been. i tape right up to the bump and have plenty left over.

I have the Deda magic bar and use Cinelli tape. One benefit to the oversized bars is that I believe most of them shorten the length of the bar past the drops to shave weight, essentially making the taped portion much shorter than it would normally be. And, as the post above indicated, the bar is really only fat right near the stem and tapers pretty rapidly. I will say that if you have not yet used them, they are very nice. No flex and no noise at all from the front end.
