Although product is high quality and shipping was prompt, it is not well thought out. It is sold as a universal product when it is meant for a plain bar. It is too narrow to wrap around the bar AND brake cable leaving an ugly gap. Im sure its operator error but I soaked the leather in water before I started and kept it damp while I worked but I couldn't stretch it enough to cover the brake cable. Stitching holes looked stretched and i was worried they would tear if i went went tighter.
really - thanks!
There's many different brands, styles, materials and colors of handlebar tape, I found the KEEPER. I chose leather due to its life expectancy, and re-wrap potential. You'll have to judge for yourself but for me leather is the only wrap that will transfer between bars multiple times without compromising structure. Walnut Studiolo supplied a quality product, instructions, a sweet treat, games, green wrapping, leather classes if wanted and friendly communication. If you go this route, expect a charge commensurate with a lasting leather product that gives a certain classic look and old school feel.
