How to Wrap Road Bike Handlebar Tape Like a Pro!

Here’s a handy little video to show you how to wrap road bike handlebars like a pro, with Joe from Sticks & Stones bike shop in Rexburg, Idaho.

Things you’ll need:

  • Scissors
  • Electrical Tape
  • Handlebar Tape with a little extra tape

Before you start:

Cut a 45 degree angle at the start of the tape so it has a cleaner finish and will look straight on the end

To remember:

When you put your hands in your drops or up on top of your bars you are actually putting an outward pressure on the tape. So on the right-hand side, we will wrap the tape in a clockwise direction so as you put pressure on your bars it will actually tighten up the tape versus loosening it. You’ll do just the opposite on the left-hand side.
