It's about that time for my bar tape to be replaced and I was just wondering if there was one that may be better for a rider like myself, that doesn't wear gloves?

I have always found Cinelli cork tape to be durable and comfy.

I use bontrager tape and I wear gloves regularly, but yesterday they were rubbing a hot spot 10 miles into a 65 mile ride so I decided to go without. At the end of the ride my hands were great.

If anyone is looking for some good tape with little padding, I have been running this faux leather bar tape all year now. Looks great, good grip, and lasts a long time. It has lasted me about twice as long, so far, as any cork tape I have had. Can't remember the brand of the tape I am using, but there are several companies selling similar products now.

Gah, I have nightmares about wrapping handlebars.
Nothing to it, I do it all the time.

Watch the movie a few times then just do it.

Good luck, enjoy life.

That brown cork sure looks nice, I have it on my road bike.

BUT, don't let it rub on anything, I let it get against the side of the inside of the pickup and now I am going to have to re-do it with new tape.
