Change of colour
first time I've changed the bar tape...Good packaging, comes with black bar ends which I didn't realise. Good length to wrap around shifters. Comes with end tape too.. Has gel backing which makes fitting easier. Better thickness than the original tape on Giant SCR.. Went for a quick ride and over rough ground the new tape cushioned better.. If your like me and looking for a change..you couldn't go far wrong with this.

This bar tape is great full stop! But at under £5 a roll (with my discount) it is a steal...Easy to apply looks and feels great....I've bought another roll just in case I have a mishap and tear the tape thats on there!

Great Bar Tape
Does what it's supposed to do, grippy and comfortable, would buy again!

Very basic tape. Cheap but the quality isn't grea
It's cheap bar tape with a good range of colours. It's also not that comfortable and not that strong: one roll ripped as I wrapped it and and torn more than I'd expect following a fall (not a high speed one - it was my 6 year-old son).

Great length and thickness
Long enough to complete wrap with figure 8 around hoods, didn't replay have to scrimp on having enough to complete the bars. Also good thickness and spongy nature to the grip, seems good so far, why pay more!

Excellent quality and price
I found this bar tape to be strong, longer and easier to apply and adjust than the Deda. The Deda tore when making adjustments and all four rolls of Deda I bought ran short. The Lifeline gave a little extra which was handy for different bar wrapping techniques, and was very comfortable.

Super easy to install. Good feeling on bumby roads. Seems durable, but time will tell. I am surprised by the quality of this product

Just put them on today and I gotta say this is the thickest bar tape I have ever used. Although the tape is said to be 2mm thick, with the gel layer underneath, the tape is actually about 3mm thick. With the extra thickness the tape actually feels really good in the drop as the grip is significantly tighter.
The only issue I have is the length of the tape. I tend to not stretch the tape too much and have as much overlap as possible; and the tape is just enough for my 42cm c-c Pro PLT compact. If you use wider bars you may have to stretch the tape quite a bit and have less overlap.

Feels like money
Love the Lifeline products. This bartape feels and wears like Specialized Roubaix tape at a fraction of the cost. It is a textured feel to it, that keeps grip, even in foul conditions. Highly recommended.

great value, easy to fit, comfortable
I found the tape easy to fit, including repositioning when I'd gone wrong and needed to try again.
After two 25mile rides the gel padding seems perfectly comfortable. No sign of movement or deterioration.

Horrible feel, tricky to wrap.
Horrible feel, tricky to wrap. I have ended up taking off the bike.

Good basic tape with nice amount of padding
Although cheap compared to some, this feels almost identical to the Pro bar tape I have on another bike at twice the price. I bought this to double wrap my bars for a trip to the cobbles of Belgium so I wasn't expecting much from it, but I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to use, and the thickness of the padding.
I was so impressed that I've bought another couple of rolls in anticipation of replacing the cabling on my other bike at the end of the winter.

I bought this for my winter hack, i didn't expect much for the price.
But for under £5.00 its good value.
Looks good, definitely doesn't look cheap like some you can buy at this price point.
Comfortable and easy to fit.
I messed up on one and i could take it off and then put it back on again without damaging it.

Does the job
This tape went on easily and has lasted well on both bikes that I have used it on. Would definitely use it again.

Reasonable range of colours and great value! comes with extra pieces of tape to go around the levers. Self adhesive is not too stick meaning you get a second chance of getting it right..
Nice and comfy bars now :-)

Good quality cheap bar tape
Tape has adhesive strip on the back, has a textured surface and provides a reasonable amount of padding on the bars. Can't fault at this price. Colour is nice and bright as well.

Works fine, unfortunately I did not wrap the bars very well so may have to retape the bars, this was my fault not any fault of the tape.

great value for money bar tape, very comfortable takes a lot of the shock out of the rough uk road surface save going though your hands and arms.

Signs of wear after first long ride not going to last me long but nice padding. Nice feel. Nice to wrap .

Does the job well
Decided to double wrap my bars. left the old stuff on and put this on over the top. fells lovely and it does actually make a difference feeling the little vibrations less. cheap and well made stuff.

It's hard to judge a product by its reviews as they can be wildly conflicting, who do you believe?... perhaps not me but I will try and make a case.
Well I've raced road bikes for teams for a few years now and as such I've been through a fair few top end products without having to consider the expense. However on a personal level when it comes to my own bikes I'm an absolute cheapskate and I just go for things that do the job, cus I've got a shiny team bike to make me happy when I'm done training on the cast iron hack mobile! As such I think I'm well positioned to comment sometimes as I've seen a lot of cheap stuff that's great, and a load of expensive stuff that's awful, and vice versa.
This product looks bad, feels awful, and has no durability. For these reasons it is also poor value as you will have paid 5 quid for the indignity of putting it on and riding around with it.
You really don't have to spend that much more to avoid this. Even at twice the price whatever it is will be cheap, and much better.

fantastic tape, even better price
I don't think I'll be buying more expensive tape ever again, other than maybe for cosmetic reasons. Lifeline tape has a great selection of colours, the tape is comfortable and of good quality.

it's bar tape !
My fiddly job (my fault) meant that the sticky stuff got less sticky than it should with several readjustments - but with normal use this would have been perfect. Found it strong even though some reviewers suggested this may be an issue. Not tested it more than once - but seemed to do the job pretty well at a good price !

This handle bar tape is of excellent quality and thickness ,would not hesitate to buy this tape another time, cannot believe the quality for the price excellent

Amazing tape, great feel, All at a reasonable price
28 August 2015
Great performance and comfort
Amazing tape, great feel, good cushioning and been on my bars now for several months and little sign of wear. All at a reasonable price.

Longer than most
I used this on a 44cm drop bar with a long drop and gel pads top and bottom - and there was still enough to get all the way round! Its very comfortable and durable enough - I change mine every couple of years as I prefer lighter colours and get nerdy about them looking shabby

Additional information about GoonerJenks could not be loaded.
One pack will be ok to do both sides. You may have to do a nice firm fir but it will easily cover up to about 50-60mm from your handlebar stem . If I wanted to stretch it and do it tight it could cover the complete bars ..
