Hemp twine and cloth handlebar tape

This was my first wrap using hemp twine and cloth handlebar tape.  It took more time than the synthetic bar wrap and electrical tape, but the result felt very “organic” and durable.

This combination works well for bikes that have cushy tires.  The tires absorb the road bumps (instead of your wrists) and the cloth gives a durable and “grippy” surface.
