Finally the bar tape which will perfectly fit the all-over-theme of the Tarmac. Lizard Skins and Supacaz are one of the fancy tape manufactures which also performs best. On the Tarmac I will go for Supacaz because of the *BLING* style =D
These tools are needed:
- Bike Stand
- 3mm Allen
- Supacaz Super Sticky Kush (Black/Red)
- Supacaz Bling Tape (Gold)

The base is a clean Handlebar with taped cabling. This is also the last step to align the levers (torque 6-8NM).
Then as always from the end to the lever, straight to the top. Because of the thickness of the Supcaz Tape I skipped the Figure-8 and go for the simple covering style.
On the top I used some standard black tape to get a perfect finish.
Tape done… now it is time for the end plugs. Supacaz also offers a perfect solution that looks super nice – powder coated aluminum. The plug itself is equipped with a pop-up mechanism and spreads out in the handlebar end. This is a much stronger fit than the conventional ones.
The final result: Black / Red / Gold
