How To: Spruce Up Your Bicycle with This Wooden DIY Riser Handlebar

Spruce Up Your Bicycle with This Wooden DIY Riser Handlebar

Looking for a way to make your bike stand out? You could light it up with LED rim lights or turn signals. Or if you're looking for something a little less flashy, you could make your own set of custom wooden handlebars like these by furniture designer David Moore.

To actually make these wooden handlebars, you will need some woodworking tools, not to mention some actual woodworking skill, or at least the tools and some knowledge on bending and forming wood.

In his video below, David shows exactly how he turned a plain piece of wood into a very stylish set of handlebars, set to the tune of "Big Iron" by Marty Robbins.

If you don't have the equipment to make your own wooden handles, you can always modify the handlebars you've already got. Use some LED tape to make them super bright, or if you prefer something simpler, just wrap them with handlebar tape. You can find it in almost any color, so it's a quick, cheap way to make your bike a little more your own.
