Also what works extremely good and I used it for years is "Deck tape".
two different kinds here....but both work great!
1.) deck tape for skate boards , that you can get online or a skate shop.
2.) deck tape they sell at places like home depot or ACE Hardware for an actual deck.....like your back deck on your house or something. Makes great traction on like slick steps and so forth.
And it IS NOT $35.00 for two little sheets.....it's about 10% that cost!
i'll second the deck tape, but I stopped using it because it's like taking sand paper to your boots and pants. awsome grip but wears out your gear really fast.
AH....ok , I know which stuff you are talking about , and yes....the "Sand" paper stuff does tear the hell out of your pants and boots. There was another kind , that instead of sand , it's a real rough plastic of some sort. It was really close to the stuff you can buy through a bike shop. I did use the sand paper deck tape as well.....and you guys were right , it tore the shit out of the sides of my boots and insides ( inside knee ) of my pants within just a couple rides. But it worked like super glue...HAHA!
And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
