Tanglefoot Uncle Art's Shriner Party Pants Bar Tape


Specially formulated for ATB bikes that are trying to channel Uncle Art's Shiner Party Pantaloons from 1983. 

Poultney loves a parade, and Uncle Art was a regular feature on parade circuit with his tiny Shiner car made of a golf cart with a seriously modified VW beetle shell on top of it.  He'd cruise around in high water leisure pants, a stained tank top, rainbow suspenders and a fez as one does.  

When Uncle Art was old and had alzheimer's, he would steal a bike from the staff at the nursing home in Rutland and pedal back to East Poultney to be near his maple trees.  He'd stand in the swamp enveloped in the warm blanket of the night, waiting for  the morning.  Then the next week he'd do it again.  Mind you, it's a 20+ mile pedal over dirt roads, hills and hollows to get from Rutland to East Poultney, and he was in his 90's, on an ill fitting bike, with only his ancient leisure pants to protect him.  There is nothing more ATB than that, dear reader.  

Very durable with some wild threads that pop out here and there, as befitting the Shiner Party Leisure Pantaloon vibe / program / mantra / scene.

We've updated the tape for modern sensibilities with a double sided tape, so it wraps like normal cotton bar tape, or really, any non-foamy tape.  That's to say it's 15% harder to wrap than super cheapo foam tape, but it's not hard if you are semi skilled at wrapping tape. If foam is a 1 outta 10 on the difficulty scale, this tape is a 3 and leather tape is a 5.  

1 roll is big enough for 1 complete set of 52cm wide dirt drops.  Pre cut the bar wrap areas, then cut the remaining tape in half for each side.  18' of tape, +/- an inch or two.  

 This is probably the last 26 rolls of Uncle Art's tape we'll ever have.  The fabric has been discontinued, so if this is your jam, get it while it's hot, like the mashed potatoes under a heat lamp at the VFW buffet.
