Back in 2013 I washi-taped my bike. And by that I mean that I put strips of washi tape on both the front and rear fenders of my “trail” bike. (I call this bike my “trail” bike because it is the bike that I ride on trails. Technically it’s called a “hybrid” bike meaning that it’s meant to be ridden on both roads and trails. But I only ride it on trails.)
I still get so many compliments about my bike when I’m out on the trails. Doesn’t it look pretty! I’ll never forget the time I took it to the bike shop for a repair, the bicycle mechanic said “hey, I like the washi tape on the fenders”. I was so surprised that he knew it was called washi tape. I asked him how he knew what it was and he said his mother was a scrapbooker so he knew the term ; )
This same washi tape has been on these fenders for nearly five years. I can’t get over how well it has held up. There are a few strips that have frayed at the edges a little and the tape isn’t as bright as it was five years ago but it still looks good!
