I'm on board, man!

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This bike is still new to me and I have only put about 85 miles on it so far. Just completed a 50+ mile ride last week and I have to say it is impressive. If you had asked me prior to that if I knew what a smooth ride was I would have said yes, but I was wrong. This is what smooth is. Competitive Cyclist staff were professional and helpful. The bike arrived well packed and protected. I just wish I had known to purchase the Di2 charger ahead of time.

Never came on with batteries included. Opened it up fiddled with the contact points with a tiny screwdriver and got it to work for about a week on my wife's bike. Transferred it to my bike one evening - no light. Retried the aforementioned procedure with contact points - no light. No light? . . . Trash. I'll never buy one of this push on/off style lights again. This is the third strike.

If you have taped your bars before many times and have the confidence to try to use this stuff, then go ahead. Maybe you will have a better experience than I did. However, I found this to be a frustrating loss of time and money. The adhesive stripped half-way off of one roll when I removed the backing (I've never had that happen before). Having read and watched videos on how to wrap bars with lizard skin bar tape, I was still unprepared for the progressive wrinkle that inevitably develops along the edge as you move up the bar. Trying to not stretch the tape is an exercise in futility as the tape will not adequately cover 440 size bars if not stretched. So, back to stretching a little more and you've got a worsening situation with the aforementioned wrinkle. Try to overlap a little less to compensate and the wrinkle pushes the tape off and you get a gap. Really, this must be what the expression "french kissing a rattle snake" means. Unfortunately, I like white bar tape so by the time I got done with this job my handlebars look like they've been down a gravel road. The takeaway: either I don't have the voodoo that is required to wrap bars with with this stuff or it's just bad stuff. Either way, I accept the fact that this product isn't for me. Good luck.
