If I were you I would save my money buy black cork tape for training. And on thoose occasions you want to fancy your self with the white one you have a white cork tape waiting in the garage. The lizard skin gets dirty and slippery when it rains and you can probably buy 4 rolls of cork for the cost of one lizardskin one.

Did cork white, turned grey an hour after finishing, or so it seemed.
Finally switched over to fizik in white - good tape, good price and stays clean. Not quite as grippy as good old fashion cork but good enough and lasts a hell of a lot longer
It only hurts if you think.

Fizik microtex is the best IMO. :thumbup:

If they ever said they were discontinuing it (which they are NOT) , I would by a dozen and use them as long as I could.

It's durable and cleanable. :thumbup: :thumbup:

This is true! Deda white carbon tape is super durable and cleans up like new every time. I've had the same wrap since last June and it's still perfect.
Long live the horizontal top tube, standard crankset, and Italian threaded bottom bracket.
