Hi guys,

Anyone got some spare brake tubing duct/caterpillar they don't want ?

This stuff is placed on the front of the handlebars to allow smooth fitment for brake cables to go in, used with aero brake levers. :wink:

Thanks.
Ian.

I'm sure I've got some in a drawer somewhere. Never used it myself, just tape the cables to the bars.

You can have it if you really want it. Just something for postage etc.

Am I generous or what? Giving stuff away these days, I don't know :shock: :? :wink: :roll:

PM me.

Thanks ned :D

My handlebar tape is benotto pearl white and any tape used underneath the benotto tape will show through....i think !

But then again what about using masking tape that might do it, i'll let you know ned about using tape before you post me the freebie :D :D :D

Cheers.
Ian.

I too use benotto white tape, and have the cables taped to the bars with white insulation tape. it can be seen if you look closely, because i only taped in 4 places each side. the trick is to completely wrap the bars (or at least from the levers up to the centre) with white insulation tape before wrapping the benotto over the top.
