I was taught early on to wrap from the ends to the top, counter-clockwise when looking at the end of the bar. I was told this was to prevent catching the edge of the tape, which I imagine would cause curling and unraveling.

Using this method, I've never had any problems as long as I kept the tape stretched while wrapping. This is with cork (my fave), foam, vinyl, cloth and plastic, bot with and without sticky tape.

Could somebody please start a discussion of whether one turns the tape clockwise or counterclockwise when wrapping handlebars, and whether either direction works better on the upper part of the bars vs. the lower?

Oop, I think I just started that discussion. Any takers?
