It’s time to replace the bar tape on my road bike. It’s ratty and unraveled and flaps in the wind.
Question for you: I’m a year round cyclist. The rainy season will start soon in California. If I wrap my bars with shiny new tape, I’ll just have to replace it again after things dry out next Spring.
Should I spring for new tape?

Goreville, Illinois: A man from Japan riding in a homemade bamboo experimental bicycle was hit by a car Friday morning. More here. The cyclist — Takashi Matsumoto — is traveling across the United States on his bamboo bike to investigate the production of bamboo bicycles by various companies and organizations in the U.S. He has a blog called Bamboo Samurai. I wish I had known about him when he visited Santa Cruz.
