Campy used to say to wrap up n out. They also showed two strips in line with the bar behind the hood, as opposed to the traditional single strip along the clamp. They don't make any distinction anymore. Others, too, but of course the specifics escape me right now.
The edge at the hoods and ramp trail, they do not lead. In either direction. The tape edge would only be leading if taping from the top of the bar down.
A poll of pro peloton bikes that I do every so often has tape direction at about 50/50. Maybe ten years ago, it was 75% or more my way. I'm sure the tide swings in both directions. Oddly, I think it was Garmin on Felts that I saw a few bikes where one side was wrapped one way and the other side was the other way. Identical as opposed to mirror image, if you will.
It's a MYTH that wrapping in this direction leads to tape slide. If it did, I would find EVERY bike wrapped this way with slid tape (maybe one in a hundred, I'll get back to that), and I would find ZERO bikes wrapped the other way with slid tape (again, about one in a hundred). Fact-every single road bike that leaves the doors here is wrapped as I require. No, there isn't a line of angry customers outside right now with unraveled tape.
Maybe 90% of the unraveled tape I've seen was from residual lubricant on the bar prior to wrapping, from lubricating cables or other. Alcohol on the bar, wipe, tape, no more problem, even a year later. Again, if your statement was correct, they would be back with the tape slid again.
One of these days I'll do a scientific study on this, to prove it once and for all.
Note: I've been wrenching for 17 years, service manager for 15 of those, more of an oversight role now, setting standards. hardly rookie. I'm highly regarded. Please don't take this response as an opportunity to attack me personally.
