The tape was ready to go right out of the box. It was the first tape that I have ever bought and have ever replaced for that matter. I bought the tape mainly because of the other good reviews but also becuase I liked the color and thought it would match up well on my black/blue Specialized Allez. I had both sides wrapped in no time! I did reference a "how to" video on YouTube but other than that it is a simple process for almost anyone.

The bar tape itself is fine. Red is very much red. Plus there's enough of it to do a 46cm bar. The result is on the fat and spongy side of comfortable.

However, the bar plugs are laughably cheap looking in their fake chrome plasticness. Plus, despite being a Salsa product, they were far too small for a Salsa Cowbell drop bar. If you have 20mm ID bars then the bar plugs won't fit.

Also the end tape with its fancy chillis...too short to be of any real use. Plus when you stretch it out all those beautifully rendered chillis get stretched into weirdly wonky shapes which just looks stupid. So black electrical tape is the go...

Tape is fine but the trimmings are rubbish. So one could argue about the value for money...

    Comfortable and easy to install on my butterfly handlebars. I was able to get a tight and plush wrap with this tape. Made for a perfect color match to my Brooks saddle. If your going to ride, then ride with style.

      Comments about Salsa Gel Cork Bar Tape:

      I bought the tape to match the color of my Brooks saddle (brown), and it does that reasonably well. Padding is good, seems similar to the Cinelli gel tape it replaced. Adhesive backing is useless, which I don't mind on a thin tape, but thick tape like this needs something more. Plan on using double-sided scotch tape underneath this for ease of installation and to keep it from sliding around.

        Not the first cork tape I have used. It has just the right amount of padding for me. I always have trouble tucking in the end of the tape into the handle bars and inserting the plug.

            Comments about Salsa Gel Cork Bar Tape:

            This is the best tape I have used, bar none. First of all, it's long enough for whatever you have; I fully taped 46 cm NONcompact drops and had extra without having to overly stretch it. Second, it is so comfy. Perfect mix of cushy without being so much so that it fatigues your hands/squishes all the way down to the bars. It's kept me very comfortable on my centuries. Will continue to wrap my bars with this tape!

                I bought this in black so the Salsa logos aren't very noticeable. It was my first time wrapping a bar and I had no problem with the installation.

                If you like the feel of cork tape this is hard to beat.

                  I like the no stick backing because it makes it easier to install. So far it has held in place and seems liike it will continue to not slip.
