I Made My Bike Look Hot   Leave a comment

As in spicy hot, like a habanero pepper.

About a year ago, I put on new handlebar tape. I instantly regretted it–I simply didn’t like how it looked. I literally didn’t ride for a few days because I was embarrassed to be on it.

Further, the material didn’t wear well. It flaked off, and, from the sweat inherent in physical activity, turned black.

Today, I decided to replace it with orange tape. I went to a local bike store, and grabbed some new tape. I looked at what they had, and picked orange. The salesperson commented it would look good, more so when I described by bike. I brought it home, and, along with other maintenance, wrapped my bars.

I think it looks great! The bike is a habanero, so the orange tape is a great fit.
