Wrapping Your Handlebars

Wrapping Your Handlebars

After playing most the weekend with video editing and voice overs, I decided to continue learning and pull YouTube video’s from TriSports for your viewing pleasure. (The guy isn’t bad looking either.)

Here is a great video on wrapping road handlebars:

A couple notes from my personal experience :

  • Go slow
  • Make sure to overlap half way as you go around the bar
  • Have all your supplies ready to rock prior to starting
  • Clean your hands, it is very frustrating to get done a perfect wrapping job to have grease marks every where.

    Everyone certainly has their own way of doing it. I know some people prefer to change directions at the levers.

    So if I try to rewrap my handlebars and it goes strangely awry (I know, that would be shocking) will you fix it for me??? Because I’m ready for PINK or ORANGE wrap… soooo pretty.

    I admit to scoffing when I saw the posted video. Then I watched it and was like, “AH! That’s why it doesn’t turn out perfectly for me.” It’s all in the small details, so a big thanks for sharing this. Now I want to re-wrap my bars.
