    My hands seem to be becoming more susceptible to road noise as I've got older so I use Lizard skins 3.2mm tape and have Bontrager gel inserts under that!! In the past I've found Cinelli cork tape to be effective and very good value.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    Fabric Knurl bar tape. Used to use Lizard Skins but the Knurl tape is better.

    There was a review in The Comic (aka Cycling Weekly) a few weeks back on bar tape. There were some favourites but they were mind bogglingly expensive even by Lizard Skins standards and not apparently available from the normal retailers anyway.
