Does it exist? Is there anything which does a better job of staying clean than others? I've just got my new supersix which is Great but the white tape is going to be a nightmare. Before you all suggest black I know that's an option but I'm curious!

    Team colours?

    You need the Bontrager green tape for that. :D

    (I have the same problem).

    +1 Fizik Microtex - household cleaning spray like Mr Muscle and a scrubbing brush will bring it up gleaming again. I'd hung up my race bike over the winter with the bars down not aware that a drinks bottle had dribbled all over the tape - by Spring it was festering green. Spray and a scrub and it was ready to go again.

    Excellent sounds like a resounding vote for the fizik stuff. If I do fancy team green (not sure how that would look) then bontrager it is.
  • the vanish ox spray thing works wonders on the tape

    I really could do with some of that stuff right now. There's a herd of buffalo in my living room and they are making way too much noise.
