Customise your dorm room
13 great ideas to make your room your home away from home.
Bikes are a wonderful way of moving around town. They help avoid traffic, keep you fit and are easy to park. What we really love about them is that they respond well to personalising - and so sugru makes a highly versatile addition to your cycle kit (top cycling site BikeRadar called it 'an incredibly useful tool.')
We've put together 9 great examples of how you can modify your ride and make it work better for you.
Your bike bell can be very useful in traffic, but it's sometimes hard to reach. Use sugru to place it right on the brake lever, so it's always at hand
Mike uses mirrors while cycling, but the original mounts were loose-fitting and he was always readjusting them. So he attached mirrors to his handlebars at just the angle he needed.
Ben cycles around London quite a bit, but admits he has a pretty terrible sense of direction! This little improvement has revolutionised his cycling - it's quicker and safer than stopping to check a smartphone.
We agree that being able to check a smartphone for directions could be very useful, just in case you need more detail than a compass can give. So here's Sugru-er Klopapeiro's solution, a smartphone mount, amazingly versatile as it's removable.
Henry sugru-ed his camera to his handlebars - Sugru is great for this as it has excellent dampening properties and will absorb shakes while filming.
Riding with thick gloves in winter can be very comfortable, but may have its downsides, if the light switch on your helmet is too small to find. With a little bit of sugru, you can make the light switch big enough to use while riding.
There are many more ways you can customise your bike, to make it truly unique and perfect for your needs. If you're already thinking of how you'd like yours to be, just go ahead and get some sugru!
