So, here is the plan:

It's book into be stripped and serviced at the end of the month, leaving essentially is leave as it. Should be great.

My only question is.....what bartape?


As in what brand or what colour bartape? Colour wise, it's a grey bike, so the world is your lobster. everything goes with grey, but the tape that's on there just now looks very nice. You can't go wrong with black though, and I always like something with a bit of cushion. Is it bad form to use a nice modern PU tape like the Condor Shockproof or Zipp service course?

Don't fancy having a go at doing the work yourself then?

Yes and no - TBH my mechanic is ace, he will really enjoy doing it (its right in the era of when he was racing) and he will make a very good job of it!

Not White!

White tape (benotto excepted) is the work of the Dirt Devil. Ok for pro teams, but not for practical riders.
When I rule the world, white bar tape and saddles will be outlawed
