Just like my, ahem, you know, my bar tape don't stink.
Good one, folks! But, 4 year old bar tape? The only 4 year old bar tape I have is on bikes that don't get ridden. Idk how you could keep it from tearing or otherwise deteriorating for that long. Oh wait - you COULD wrap it with another level of tape to protect it! That might work!
I do remember the days when I used gel lever hoods - those went in the washer with my gloves.
Je n'ai fait celle-ci plus longue que parce que je n'ai pas eu le loisir de la faire plus courte. --Blaise Pascal
It depends. If I am to speak ten minutes, I need a week for preparation; if fifteen minutes, three days; if half an hour, two days; if an hour, I am ready now. --Woodrow Wilson, when asked about the amount of time he spent preparing speeches.
