Wet weather compatible bar tape(2 posts)

Wet weather compatible bar tapeJose

I'm building up a cross frame for commuting to replace my mtb beater. It rains often enough during winter here in the SF Bay Area that I'm concerned about how well cork bar tapes will hold up in the rain. Any recommendations, experience appreciated.

thanks,

Jose

Greptile tape... It's like miniature soft velcro. They also make a glove it works with. I've heard the stuff is excellent in the rain.

Deda tape also holds up well in all conditions, and contains no cork. I've found it to be almost impossible to wear out.
