7 inexpensive ways to personalise your road bike

Want to give your bike a make-over? We suggest seven ways to freshen up your steed and make it reflect your personality without breaking the bank.

Bar tape comes in many different styles, colours and materials

Whenever editor Kirsty sets out on a new cycling challenge, she treats her handlebars to a new set of tape. It’s a great way to make your bicycle feel like new again, without breaking the bank.

Try not to scrimp too much though, you’d be surprised at just how much of a difference a decent tape can make. You want it grippy enough to stop your mitts from slipping when you’re sweating and just the right amount of cushion to prevent sore hands.

With so many colour options available, we can guarantee you’ll be able to find a shade to compliment your bike.
