    I want to change the look...

    of my bike. I'm thinking of new bar tape...something super cool! My bike is red and black. Any ideas?

    order some cool decals? and yeah, you could change it up a little with new bar tape and maybe a different colored saddle.

    Umm.... Chop it, put on a twisted gold springer, continental kit and 33" apes. That would sure change its looks!

    I came accross some yellow tape with red and black specks...but I think it would look too.....McDonaldsy. The harlequin look is kinda cool. I would have to take it to my shop though....I can't even change a tire much less my bar tape.

    . . . so did you put it on?

    I decided to do my own bar tape because, even if you screw it up, you're only out $5 of bar tape. As it was, it was sorta fun, and the result is definitely unprofessional but is good enough.
