cork handlebar tape on the steering wheel

Post by MartinLowe »

Just wrapped my steering wheel with cork handlebar tape to improve grip and make it more comfortable. Enough left over to wrap the end of the handbrake lever as well, much more comfortable in very cold weather and better grip when wearing gloves, and all for £5.50.
Need to do a larks head "knot" to finish the the parts where the spoke join the rim, and tie down the loose ends. I'll put a picture up when I remember

He said Holly Willoughby had a big arse.


So what if it's true. I still wasn't going to stand for that.
