We love artist Thomas Jeppe‘s wonderfully taped bike, via The Selby. The tape is not just a cool visual, it adds cushioning to the handlebars. We went looking for this snazzy handlebar tape at found a trove of close matches – Splash Ribbon –  made by Cinelli, whose tapes get very high ratings. Possibilities include vivid stripes, neon and leather. Our favorite: this zebra print one:

Of course, you can always use plain old gaffer’s or electrical tape, which won’t give you cushioning but will give a good grip. For instructions on how to wrap handlebars, click here.

We’re wondering what else we can wrap with tape to change the look?
