Ride Domestique

Celebrating the spirit of cycling
In an effort to keep my bike rule #8 compliant I run white bar tape. There is a major downside to white bar tape though, it quickly becomes grey bar tape. This is a problem since those of us who pursue the path of the domestique know that ones bike should always look sharp an clean.
It turns out there is an easy solution though. If you look at the picture (sorry it’s not an awesome one…) above you can see the before and after of having cleaned the bar tape with goo gone. Worked like a champ, knocked the grey gunk off the tape and left it smelling faintly like oranges without damaging it as far as I can tell.
So the next time your tape needs cleaning grab some goo gone, paper towels and get to work. Your bike will look like the amazing ride that it is in no time.
