I change out bar tape like people go through socks. probably because I get bored and want to try out something different. This is my go to bar tape. Easiest tape to wrap (no adhesive backing). Long enough to wrap (even 46 bars) and have enough left over. You can wrap thick, or thin. Or thin on the drops and thin on the tops. This is by far the easiest tape to wrap. I can wrap a bar in ten minute without say a single cuss word in my garage. Just skip using the finishing tape and use electrical tape instead. If by chance you have to remove the tape for some work on your bike the supplied finishing tape will most likely tear the bar tape when you remove it. Best thing is, it's cheap (the price). I prefer black as I get grease on my hands when I get the dreaded F. Just don't pull too hard, it has a stretch limit. It can tear if you pull too hard.
