    I just got back into road bikes after a looooong absence. I bought a barely used Trek Pilot. So far I love the bike. The only complaint I have with it so far is the cheap quality and poor factory installation of the handlebar tape. I have been out of this too long to know what kind of tapes are available and/or preferred. I live rural and trips to bike shops for personal shopping is rare. I mostly have to use mail order and buy sight unseen so I research as much as possible before ordering anything. Any advise would be appreciated.

    There are so many good tapes out there right now. Cinelli cork would be an excellent choice - definitely look for something cork or synthetic cork. I recommend a tape with some padding built into it. I have used Profile tape for all my bikes. Check out...
