Green bar tape(10 posts)

Green bar tapeMel Erickson

Does anyone know where I can find some plain green bar tape (not cloth)? I'm not looking for celeste green or lime green or neon green. Just green green, like British Racing Green or Red Green green. Seems to be a non color in the bike world.

2nd the Cinelli celeste cork, with a small caution.Silverback

That Cinelli celeste matches the factory Atlantis paint (Grant says it was coincidence...), and I used it at first. Looked nice, if a little TOO color-coordinated for my taste, and it was comfortable. But I move my hands around a lot on the bars, and the exposed edges started to fray and crumble after just a couple of hundred miles. I ended up wrapping over it with cotton tape, so I get the padding and absorbency with a little more durability. Color's dead on, though.
Mel, try these guysDave Hickey

It looks like Silva might have a shade of green that's not Celeste or lime
Silva has British racing green...Dave Hickey

I bought this frame to build up as a fixie. It has beautiful green paint so I wanted to turn it into a real show-piece stunner. I went on the hunt for green stuff. NOTHING...I managed to source some green anodized spoke nipples and the odd bottle cage but that's it. I've decided that I'm going to have to go with yellow accents (bartape, saddle, cages, and tires)and I may take some bits and peices to someone who does anodizing for a little bit of extra green.

Salsa makes a Rasta colored bar tape that is green, red, yellow and black mix. I found this at www.aebike.com

I'm going to be in Madison this Friday and will stop at Yellow Jersy to see if they have the green Silva tape. If not, I'll probably order it from framebuilding.com. I'm going to try the Rivendell weave with black tape to match the green paint on my Softride.
