Here is one way to save money, reduce plastic trash, and avoid plastic leaching toxic chemicals to into your body!
I ride my bike, which is more than 10 years old, every day for transportation and exercise and have noticed that the plastic handles over time become very sticky and it feels very uncomfortable. I am concerned that the toxic plastic and chemicals are may be absorbing in to my body. I was definitely not interested in buying new plastic handlebar grips, especially since they would require replacing every year or two. I experimented with wrapping cotton twill tape and I love how it feels and it even works better than original plastic grips!
