Add Some Color to Your Ride

Spring is here. The flowers are beginning to bloom – and we’re thinking about color! More specifically, how can we add some color to our rides? We have suggestions that will add color from your head to your toes and to your bike in between!

Last fall, our own Joy Sherrick shared ways that she made her “old” bike “new” again by upgrading components. Even if you’re not looking to make any performance upgrades to your ride, you can make superficial updates that will make your bike look like new again.

Bar Tape Lizard Skins Higher Gear Wilmette


One quick and easy way to update your bike and to add a splash of color is by changing up your bar tape. Whether you’re looking for bar tape that offers the best grip or the best color selection, we have the best selection to choose from. (If we don’t have what you’re looking for in stock, we can show you colors and styles available for us to order in for you.) Whether you want cushion or camo print, we can help.

Chris King Rear Disc Hubs 150 Group


If you’re looking for the ultimate in upgrades, most people turn to wheelsets. (This is for good reason. Most people can get the most performance gains by upgrading wheels.) And if you’re looking for the ultimate in upgraded wheelsets, consider a hand-built wheelset, where you can even choose the color of the hub.
