Specialized Roubaix Tape – UpdateWritten: March 7, 2011
Components, Maintenance, New Kit, Setup & Position
Just wanted to offer a bit of an update now that I’ve got a few rides in on this bar tape – quite simply (and possibly unfortunately) it’s only as good as ‘ok’.
Yes, it wrapped well and easily, it’s got quite a nice texture to it, and it’s reasonably well padded. Can’t fault it for any of that, but after only 300km it doesn’t seem to be holding up that well.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not falling to bits or anything. For black tape to start looking tatty after such a short period of use isn’t good though.
As I said before, it’s not awful – it’s just not my favoured Lizard Skinz DSP, and even more so now I want to get that back on the bike as soon as possible.
Little details, but important ones.
