In this video Dave Everett catches up with the Orica-GreenEDGE mechanics at the Tour Down Under to see how pro mechanics apply new bar tape.
I think he’s done that before…..
Unfortunate that the cameraman lost the plot at the most complex part of the operation…
OK… so i hate him right now !
Neat. I’m not sure I’ve seen the crossover around the hoods done that way before. No separate piece around the clamp, just crossing it twice before continuing on. A lot less fiddly, but it’d never work with Fizik tape – too short!
Also adds a little extra bulk around that area because of the extra loop.
