Just because you have the same bike as your friend, doesn’t mean you can’t make it your own. There are so many items that you can easily upgrade to get a custom look and fit that is just for you!
Grips – these are an inexpensive way to get the look and feel that is right for you. Grips come in different diameters, patterns, and colors. If you’ve got a favorite color, or just want to add an accent color to your new rig, think about getting new grips.
Decals – Many suspension manufacturers today offer decal kits to allow you to match your suspension to your paint scheme on the bike. So, check with your manufacturer to see what colors they offer for your rig!
Pedals – no matter if you ride flats or clipless, brands now make them in a multitude of colors. Because anodizing does vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, it is easiest to match colors if you go with the same brand for everything. But if you don’t want to go that route, you can still get pretty close to matching everything or coordinate your colors.
Cable Housing – this is another way to bring an accent into your bike’s color scheme. Match it with your new grips, or make your bike all the colors of the rainbow. What colors you decide to bring in are up to you.
Bars – this upgrade is going to cost you a little bit more, but most people choose to purchase new bars for their bike. If you’re looking for new ones, why stick with black? Give a bit of color a little more thought. It might just make your new build stand out.
Stem – This connects your handlebar to the fork. Stems are available in as many colors as your bars. So, this offers another place to tie your custom approach together.
Helmets – while this isn’t actually attached to your bike, you do use it every time you’re out on the trails (or you should). There are SO MANY colors and styles of helmets to choose from. Each manufacturer makes their fit a little different, so try them all on and see what brand makes your perfect fit. Once you know the brand and size that is right for you, look at all the color options. You’ll be blown away by how many there are – and how they can make your bike shine!
