Alright, if Rambo rocked a 10 speed this is how he'd do his bars. This is also how he'd wrap his bars if he was on one of his daily Home Depot runs and got sidetracked in the rope section. I got this idea from the old school way of cord wrapping the ends of bar tape with string so I thought I'd give it a shot. It might be too hard for some people but hey, it only costs about $2 for the cord and you could always add some padding I suppose. Also, you can buy just about any color of electrical tape you could want.
