Awesome bar tape!
This is the first time I've installed bar tape myself, and I was worried about the results since some people have claimed that Nastro tape is hard to wrap without wrinkles. I found it very easy to work with, following Josh's video instructions which emphasize the importance of pulling HARD on the tape since it doesn't stretch easily. As you can see in the picture, the project turned out great . Not only do I love the looks of the tape (this is my daughter's bike, she selected the color) but it also has a great feel and provides plenty of cushion.
Inexpensive way to increase bar diameter
I have a drop bar bike from 2003 with 25.4 diameter handlebars. Bars did not feel great with my existing Cinelli Cork tape. The Nastro Cuscino tape increases the diameter of the taped bars so it's about the same as my other road bike with 31.8 bars. Plus I get a nice firm cushioned effect. This tape is tough, but not the easiest stuff to work with. It can be stretched, but requires a pull that would break most other tape. Getting it started cleanly near my bar con shifters was a special challenge. The butterfly tapes in the area behind the hoods is brilliant. Josh posted a tape install video on YouTube that is worth a look before you install $50 worth of new bar tape!
No gloves required
I got the black/ Miami green since it is close to the Celeste color of my Bianchi Infinito CV. I have not work gloves in warm weather in about two years since my hands get too hot. The Nastro Cuscino tape has that little bit extra cushion that makes gloveless great. As the weather turns cold it is not too thick for winter gloves. Josh has a good video on YouTube on how to properly wrap your bars.
