Looking over the shots of Jonathan Pages cross bike and the bar tape is noted as a Belgium special. Any of you Belgium people know what it is and where to get our hands on some?

According the the article JP states his mechanic uses it - "Page’s super thin, super grippy Belgian handlebar tape. “I couldn’t tell you who makes the tape, it’s the cheapest stuff, it’s from Frankie, my mechanic’s, shop,” said Page. “It’s nothing special, but it’s amazingly good; it’s the best I’ve found.”

Pro digital generic?

Does anyone know what type of bar end plugs on on Page's bike? I don't think they're related to the Bike Ribbon grip because the website musket linked to shows some Bike Ribbon plugs and they look very different.

crohnsy,

Thanks. I've never seen plugs that looked like that before. Then again, I've never seen Enve bars in person either.
