For the bike that has everything, or if you want a luxurious comfort upgrade for your hands, there is Lorica handlebar tape, by Selle San Marco.

Lorica is a synthetic leather, used by San Marco for saddle coverings and indeed, Sidi for its top-end shoe uppers. It has a soft feel but is highly tear and abrasion resistant and washable too, so you can keep it looking spick and span even in white.

Blue, pink, red and black are the other colour choices. The tape retails for £24.99.
