Hi,

Is DEDA tape actually shorter than any other brand? If so then I haven't noticed it. To me it's one of best made out there and yes, logo's (in the right place) should be visible.
They're part and parcel of the pride of ownership. Nobody wants a a Lambo without that raging bull, right?

Ciao, ;)

^ It doesn't seem any shorter than other brands, on a 42 I'd usually cut around 20-30cm each side, but I would say it's quite thin. I rate pro slightly ahead as its a little softer though less hard wearing. DSP is lovely too, but much more costly.

Never payed attention to the logos on bar tape. I run the 3.2 DSP now which has no logos.

Never had a problem on 40 or 42cm bars although I haven't wrapped anything larger. Didn't seem shorter than normal to me.
You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

Never had a problem. In fact I usually end up with 3 inches of excess. Done on Newton shallow.
