One each and in the colour of your choice too

Better late than never snacks 'n' beverages have been taken (coffee + 9 Bar with a mini panettone chaser since you ask… saved a bit of panettone for tomorrow) and the fickle finger of fate has done her work and we have four winners of some of Lizard Skins very finest bar tape in the colour of their choice. Step forward…

Congratulation to those four, they may care to check out the colours on the 2 Pure website (UK distributors of Lizard Skins), or head over to lizardskins.com before finally nailing their… ahem, colours to the mast.

Better luck next time if you didn't win, but we'll be back very soon with another chance for the fickle finger of fate to do some random pointing in your direction.

______________________________________________________________________________

The big deal with Lizard Skins tape is that it's both comfortable and very grippy, there's no need for gel pads under your tape or anything like that for something so light and thin it really does an amazing job at damping down road buzz as Shaun Audane found when he reviewed their DSP bar tape here on road.cc way back in the day.

Lizard Skins are also introducing some some new dual coloured tape - so you can be the envy of your friends with two colours on one bar… nice. It comes in black and white, red and white, blue and white and green and black. We'll be testing some soon. we've also got some of their new ultra lightweight tape as used by the pros on Vacances Soleil and Magnus Backstedt and co at Team UK Youth, impressive really because the standard issue stuff is already lighter than any other bar tape we know of.

 

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

see the reason I don't tell everyone about this site is that it would mean more names in the hat and a smaller chance of me winning  3
