Hoop tape to decorate your bike?

Post by lvictory23 » Tue Aug 09, 2016 6:09 pm

So I searched the forum and googled as well and I couldn't find any discussions over using hoop tape to decorate your bike. Has anyone tried it?

If it sticks to your bike it will probably work. You should still have lights on your bike though.

Hoop tape works. Definitely put some lights on it. I hate blinky shit but I'll put some lights on my bike.

I'm going to give it a shot. I'll make sure to post before and after pictures as well as how it fairs on the playa. :)
And yes, I'll still have lights all over it.

lvictory23 -- how did the hoop tape work out? I am also wanting to wrap my bike in a combination of reflective and color morph tape as a base -- then adding lights and what not on top of it :)
