    • Typically, electrical tape is used to secure loose brake cables to the handlebars, then handlebar tape is wrapped around the entire handlebar, above the electrical tape, to create a cushion between the cyclist's hands and the handlebar.

    • The average handlebar tape kit will include at least two rolls of handlebar tape and at least two strips of electrical tape.

    • Peel off the old handlebar tape entirely.

    • After removing the old handlebar tape, the old electrical tape securing the brake cables will be revealed.

    • Remove the old electrical tape if it is not satisfactorily securing the brake cables.

    • Apply new electrical tape to secure the brake cables.

    • Peel off a few feet of the adhesive backing on the roll of new bar tape.

    • Affix the center of the end of the tape to the edge of the drop bar so that half of the width of the tape hangs over the end of the bar.

    • Begin to snugly wrap the tape up the handlebar, pulling the tape up and over the handlebar toward the bicycle.

    • As you wrap, peel off more adhesive backing as needed and overlap each new layer of tape by one half of its width.

    • When wrapping the tape around curves in the handlebars, allow for more overlap on the inside of the curve and less overlap on the outside of the curve.

    • Upon reaching the point at which you would like the bar tape to end (typically a couple of inches out from the stem), cut the tape at a steep angle (greater than 45 degrees) toward the end of the bar.

    • Finish wrapping the last few inches of bar tape.

    • Optional: Wrap a few layers of electrical tape around the end of the handlebar tape at the middle of the bar to decrease the chances of the handlebar tape peeling off.
