Frame Protection

Since I’m so madly in love with my Redline 925, I wanted to make sure that when I locked it up at the racks that the paint wouldn’t get chipped. So here’s what I did…

Took my old bar tape, wrapped it around the area where my bike touches the rack and the lock.

Here’s another shot of it.

I plan on wrapping the whole bike in bar tape once I get enough of the stuff. I don’t want to buy it so I just wait until someone at the shop throws them away! Now that’s recycling!
