Cotton Bar Tape

Newbaum's tape is made in the USA of highly durable milled cotton cloth. 
They use eco-friendly dyes for a lower impact on the environment.

We think you'll love the tactile feel of cotton over any synthetic tape on the market, plus maybe you'll feel better, because you are using a product made with renewable natural resources.

  • Adhesive back for easy wrapping
  • 16 colors
  • Sold as single rolls which is enough to complete one side of a bar (though some people like to double up)


NOTE: You really need two to do the full drop handlebar although one should suffice for bullhorns or flat bars, or if you just want to do the "hooks" of your drop. 




"iI’ve been a fan of cotton bar tape forever. I like how it feels, I like how it looks, and I like that it’s a natural product.

My favorite cotton tape is Newbaum’s. They make a fantastic milled cotton tape right here in the U.S. using only eco-friendly dyes. It has an adhesive backing that’s sticky enough (but not too sticky), and it comes in 10′ rolls that are long enough to easily do one side of any handlebar with plenty left over (there’s nothing worse than running out of tape before you reach the end).

Newbaum’s is available in 14 colors. My favorite is the #23605 Yellow. I coat it with Zinsser BullsEye Amber Shellac to achieve the nice Brooks-like honey brown shown above.

Good stuff!"


We sell the rolls individually to allow "mix and match" if you prefer.
