Standard usage...hold tape on handle bars. Love the variety of colors!! Stock push type bar plug ends would keep getting loose and I would have to push them back in or they would disappear...kind of like my socks in the dryer!! The bar end plugs install and tighten easily. Out of habit, I keep trying to push them in at stop lights (old dog...new tricks!!) then I realize they are all ready all the way in and tight!! Snug as a bug in a rug (OK, even I'm not that old)!!
First off, let me tell you that I'm a huge Supacaz fan. I have the purple bar tape, the cap and now the oil slick plugs. My bicycle is a 2018 Specialized Ruby in black and what Specialized calls Chameleon (a color that shifts from blue to purple). Hints of Supacaz oil slick stuff here and there, really make my bicycle look super sharp! If you're a fan of Chameleon or just iridescence, I totally recommend these bar plugs! They will give your bicycle a sharp look that will make you want to ride it even more!
