Technical Tip (5): Avoid greasy handlebar grips

When you’re kneeling beside the bike doing an oil-change or working on the engine, it’s natural to grab the handlebar to hoist yourself upright and then end up with oil or grease on the handlebar grips. The cardboard centres of toilet rolls are just the right size to fit on before you start work. They fit so well they might have been designed for the job!!
