I still love my bike and how it handles but I wanted bike bling too, suddenly my grey with black cables just wasn't enough. So I checked out metallic cable covers only to discover the red ones I liked were seriously expensive. Instead I opted for matt red - much cheaper -better but not enough so then I got new handle bar grips - shiny grey with red metallic ends - yep much better.
Now if you're not into bikes you probably don't get this but it's a bit like the fabric or wool stash - once you start looking at new stuff it's hard to resist. My husband is not a shopper at all - Mr minimalist - my junk drives him to distraction but new toys well that's a different matter. He noted my sudden interest in bike stuff and so this weekend I got an early birthday present - more bike bling - check these out.
What are they you ask - these are my new floating brake rotors (discs) - pretty cool huh - yes the middle parts are pink.
