If you’ve never looked at your bicycle and wondered how to make it look like it belongs to Santa Claus, you are clearly not thinking creatively enough.
Because if your bike is an extension of you (we all know that it is), logic follows that it should get the same festive makeover as you do. So when you pull on that Christmas jumper, remember that your steed feels left out.
Here are some of our ideas as to how you can create a fully thematic, pedal-powered Christmas.
Candy stripe bar tape
Ready for a refresh of your bar tape? Time to go get yourself some red and white stuff (handily, Chain Reaction allows you to sort products by colour) – apply the two tapes using painstaking mathematical calculations – or with crossed fingers – and voila! If it sounds complicated, then there is a really great tutorial at Mission Bicycle here.
Alternatively, make life easier for yourself and pick up some pre-striped goodness.
