Gotta Retape These Bars

My new Rawland Sögn is a nice looking bike, but jesus those are some ugly handlebars. Turns out that Cinelli Celeste cork tape with amber shellac looks like pea soup vomit, complete with tiny flecks of semi-digested ham.

I think I may try to tape cloth over the top of the cork to retain some of the cushion. But I gotta do it soon as everytime I look at the bars I have trouble with my gag reflex.

Celeste is just one of thise colors that doesnt work with much. But what am I talking about -- I ride a blue bike with orange wheels.

On the contrary!

I consider you a virtuoso of pigmentation.
