Think I'll rename the bike " Denis the Menace. " Mind you, I'm not up to this standard yet...but I'll get there!

I like that a lot as well. Was it difficult, might have to go out and buy some new tape.

The spongyness from a double wrap means you can use the cheapo stuff off the net. I start at the ends with a VERY firm double wrap and work in.

I like the 'nude' Argos. Do you ever get the front tyre touching the frame at steep T-junctions?

I like them multi coloured wraps- would be kind of funky too to get yer bars wrapped up Bushido stylee:

I remember Fignon having his bars in a tricoleur scheme, though that was just straight wrapped with white tape on the flat of the bars.
