Can anyone help me with this, I'm looking for some cotton/cloth bar taoe like here ... hel_levers
but can't seem to find it anywhere, it looks super comfy but all google brings up is some cinelli logo stuff which doesn't like quite as good.

    If you want some try googling Velox Tressorex cotton handlebar tape - but it won't look clean from the minute you wheel the bike into daylight, particularly white - fine for trackies, but not much cop unless you live in the Mojave desert! Modern handlebar tape is far superior IME
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Rivendell, in the US, sells it and their site gives some pretty useful tips on wrapping the bars and sealing it with shellac.
