Choosing new finishing kit is where you can really personalise your bike as well as making some vital weight saving upgrades. Matching your stem, handlebars and seatpost can make your bicycle unique to you, and also more importantly can change your riding position for the better. Handlebars come in different widths, shapes and dimensions and stems come in different lengths and angles.
A change of saddle can also increase the comfort levels, and so make your ride more enjoyable, encouraging you to go further than you have before. Bar tape, a simple change to customise the look of your bicycle, can help in reducing vibrations coming through your hands (and arms), increase grip, and reduce fatigue whilst out riding.
