    Fancy handlebar wrap trim

    I was exceedingly bored this rainy weekend and embarked on a 40 minute project: world championship stripped trim on my bar wrap to match my Pista paint scheme. It was made with several stripes of labeling tape.



    Last weekend, I did my other bike. (But I'm not as happy with it and will probably re-do it.)



    OCD bike lovers, unite! I'd like to see other variations on this...

    I usually use black electrical tape, I like the way it looks and feels and it wraps nicely. I almost did the same thing a couple weekends ago when I saw a pack of like, 5 different colors of electrical tape at fred meyer, but then I remembered I'm lazy and cheap.

    Hahaha, maybe i'll look into doing it.
    I just bought the black roll so i could basically cover my frame to avoid gnarling up the rattle can job and patch the rough bits that peeled a bit. Haha, top tube protector? not unless it comes on a roll!

    DIY anno job on some aluminum spacers. 5 gallon bucket, some rit dye, a battery charger, and various other things aquired from your hardware store. A spacer set would be easy to do too.
