Bar tape application tips...

...having never put bar tape on before i wondered if anyone has any useful tips for application. On this occasion i'm just putting it on my aero bars, so i will need to cut down to size etc.

Would be grateful for any tips...

    it should stick on fairly well as it should have a gummy side, pull it nice and tight. I used electrical tape to secure it at both ends, never had any problems.

    I really hope this was RED bar tape you put on your bike - Less drag!

    i've got bar tape on my aerobars. i spend almost all of my time on the bike holding them ,they may as well be comy! and absorb all the sweat rather than have my hands slipping[:'(]
