Wrapped Handlebars and Cable Runs

I finally wrapped my handlebars!  Now that I have a front derailleur installed (news hardly worth an entire post about), it was finally time to make the cable runs look halfway decent.

As you can see in the picture above, the bike doesn’t fit too nicely onto the back of my car.  It’s top-heavy, and it doesn’t have a place to sit nicely onto the rack horizontally.  A little too far to the right or left, and you’re catching the chain, putting weight on the idler, or something.  It’s actually pretty annoying, but it DOES work.

Also, since I haven’t bothered to upholster the seat yet, the layers of foam are starting to separate.  The orange bungee cord is so they don’t blow off for good while the car is speeding down the road!
