I ordered Deda bar tapes recently. Last time I wrapped a Deda they were a little short on my Ergosum 42. How does your Deda wrapping look? Any pictures?
How much overlap? How much stretch?

In my opinion Deda is the best looking and most comfortable bar tape I know. But short... :roll:

I've never been able to wrap a 42-44cm bar with their Elementi bar tape.

It's doable, but be prepared to really stretch the tape and have very little overlap.

I have wrapped 44 cm 3T ergonova bars with this tape. I would estimate that I overlap it by between 1/4-1/3 of the tape width along the bar length (more overlap on tighter bar radii). This tape can be stretched pretty taught and I have never had it work loose on any wrap I have done myself.

Check out the pic in this thread to see the tape. Keep in mind I actually cut some of the tape off to terminate where it is. I don't recall how much though.

Less overlap and stretch. If you do that you can get everything perfect and have al the deda logo lined up.

I wrap this stuff on a pretty regular basis at work, one of the nicer wrapping tapes imo, can comfortably wrap to around 40mm from stem face on anything up to a 46cm bar. As the other guys said just a matter of getting the overlap and tension right, though don't stretch it too hard or it will tear. I have a pic of my bars, but its not a great looking job as it's a bit harder to get right on anatomic bars, on a normal bar I would always have the logo run up the outer face of the drop to the shifter......

Kinda sucks that it comes so short. I like more overlap on my tape to get a bit more cushioning.

Too much overlap mean the logo's overlap and that's a no no.
