I’ve got my nice new track bike (oversized aluminium) and I want to protect the top tube from handlebar strike. I notice that Kookie sell a Kashimax thing that might work- any other ideas?
And no, I don’t want a BMX style tube thanks! :evil:
I’ve seen some guys use a strip of handlebar tape wrapped a couple of times around the tube and taped. If it matches the bars it doesn’t look too bad. I don’t know if the Kashimax ones will fit oversized tubing.
Look lats, I only bought the Vigorelli because of its highly functional geometry and rigidness. I certainly didn’t buy it because of it’s slick Italian paint job, or because it says ‘Cinelli’ on it… :evil: :evil:
Apparently the Hillbrick and the Vigorelli share the same tubing anyway…
You can use an old tube, wrapped in electrical tape. It’s what i’ve got, and it’s easy as shit to make. just cut the tube to be wrapped around the top tupe one or two times, then put electrical tape over it to hold it together.
