    Unhappy Who makes the best Yellow handlebar wrap that is easy to clean?

    It seems like everything out there is cork or some sorta material that gets dirty after a few rides and is impossible to clean.

    Years ago I found a yellow tape, but they don't make them anymore.

    I had no trouble cleaning yellow Cinelli cork tape. Soap, water and a sponge worked fine.

    I know what you mean about nice clean tape

    I recently re-wrapped with Bontrager cork tape in white. (it's very white).
    It has a great feel, but I was worried about it getting dirt easily and being hard to clean.
    Well, it didn't, and it isn't.
    I like it a lot.

    Varsol. May reduce life expectancy of tires, but they will be bright when they die.
