    i have my entire wind trainer bike and trainer wrapped....

    in blown inner tubes!!! actually, i am pretty proud of it. it took years to complete. riding buddies who have seen it crack up. i even wrapped the front wheel up w the tubes so it looks like a disc. stops rust on the trainer and the frame. got the idea fr seeing bike messengers in nys who wrapped their fixed gears to hide the value and protect from dents.

    this does not compute; however i do know about the duct-tape disguise method.
    your front wheel sounds dangerous though.

    Sounds like a good gag; love to see the pics! You might be in for a surprise; if moisture does get in, it won't evaporate as easily. Kind of like how backyard electricians often make the mistake of wrapping wires with extra tape thinking it will survive the elements, only to find things got worse instead.

    sorry, no camera. not too teched out. the bike is a steel, like pipes, old lutus. weighs a ton w.o. the tubes, w. the tubes, very heavy. but it's not going anywhere, so no problem.

    When you reach a certain age, you don't need fake ones to hang down around the bottom bracket....
