Ever since I leant about French bike builders wrapping their handlebars in cloth, twine and shellac, I've been wanting to try out this classic combo on my own bicycle.
So, when I came across 500m of cotton ribbon for 3 Euro at a flea market the other day, I couldn't afford not to buy it.

Here is a handy link that shows you how to tie the twine. (Thank you Rivendell Bikes)
I decided to add a cork (Bordeaux & Chablis for the trainspotters) to each of the bar ends to complete the homage.
