The bar tape, I know its not great, My bike has some one peice foam tubes on it, but I took a decent fall, and half of one got scrapped off. So I need to replace it.
Either I spend the whole 25 dollar gift card on these two things, or I dont know what to do with it.

anyone have any objections or expereinces with the Jagwire kit?
after I get this, I will deal with the brake pads and shit like that..

as you can see, i have to run it in a dumb way becuase of where i screwed up. So i cant move that flip lever (black plastic handle) up, it was to be up normally.
and I need to angle my brake pads properly before i ride next time.

ALright,
ill probably clean them off somehow, i dont like those lines its got, 
plus Ive been having troubles perfectly centering my rear wheel.so a bit always rubs when Im riding.. 

any tips on centering perfectly?

make sure yours wheel is trued is a good place to start, if you dont have a true wheel then its gonna mess with your braking. 
secondly, there should be two tension screws located above the brake attachment point, one on either side of the wheel, i believe those are what you use to center the brake over the wheel

 


well,
its the wheel itself, it goes side to side like 1cm at most. its annoying me sice i got the front one ner perfect, but this one was been troubling me.


yea, Ill get some picture in a bit
