recycled bar tape

recycled bar tape, originally uploaded by Philip Williamson.

The best part is that the roll on the left, which is from an under-layer across the tops of the bars, is composed of about nine separate short ends of black, yellow and green tape. All the black tape is just short pieces pressed together end-to-end.
It looks like someone working in a bike shop kept the trimmings from several bikes and reused them as padding. I may take them to the Cozine Community Cycle, where they can be used the same way, 15 years later!
