The Dura-Ace DL

Heard the chatter, talk, rumors, and various discussions about 09 Dura-Ace? So have we and a reader just sent us a link to Roues Artisanales. A tech site that’s gathered all known DA data to date in once place. And, finally!, DA is routing cables along the bar and with hoods that are Campy style or SRAM style.

Favourite Handlebar Wrap

IMG_3380.jpg

I have this thing about wrapping handlebars…perhaps an obsession. When I was still a novice, I once took an hour wrapping and re-wrapping the same handlebar which led to another hour of lovers’ spat with my exasperated girlfriend. I have on occasion wrapped a bar with brand new tape, only to rip it off moments later after I decided it was “wrong for the bike.” I have also carefully transferred tape and re-applied it to three bikes over a period of two years. I have crashed on some tape repeatedly, bolstering it with electrical tape until the original wrap was barely visible. When I go to Japan, I stock up on coloured electrical tape because I think that Japanese electrical tape works best for finishing the terminal end of the handlebar wrap. One time, an ex-teammate drove an hour and half to have me work my handlebar wrap magic on his new bike.

At this point, I have a plethora of preferences for wrap.
