Guys, what do you think looks best. Tape the full bar of the Ergonova or only part tape it to leave the graphics on the top of the bar? Cheers

Tape as far as you regularly place your hands.

I never like obscuring the brand on bars.

I find the paint chips easily on these bars. I've wrapped mine most of the way along, both for comfort and to protect the paint (read: hide the chips!)

I tape mine similarly to the photo above. I prefer the untaped bar as it's not as bulky in my hands.

The only drawback I've found is some gloves are quite sloppy against the bare bar. I don't normally wear gloves though (or have gloves with a bit of grip in the palm) so not an issue for me.

Not taping up it up all the way save weight too! I don't use much of the top bar anyway as there's hardly any place for me to do climbing, hence leaving it bare is fine.
