Spoke with my shop and they said being aluminum it can't be safely cold set. So it has to go back. I'll wait and see what Pelizzoli says when they respond to my email.

Bought and wrapped new tape myself. Only my second time wrapping my bars. I think it looks decent. If anyone is scared to wrap their own bars, just know practice makes perfrct. Also got new tyres last week.

Not sure if it can be fixed being aluminum, will contact the local shop I use and see if anything can be done. If not I will try and send it back for a refund. C''est la vie!



Call for refund for sure! There should definitely be a brace or cover for protection on the dropouts for sure. Even if it was the shippjng's fault for the damage. There should be protection for that just in case that happens.

Is bar-wrapping fear a thing? I'm young, but also pessimistic for the world.

Your job looks great btw.

Thank you. I guess you could say that it's intimidating because it's a learned skill. Nobody wants their bars to be wrapped all wonky and what not.
