    Handrims

    Hello,

    I dont know if this has been asked in the past by someone else but i have a question i need help with...The handrims on my chair are looking pretty ruff from years of bumping things. Has anyone ever used bike handle bar tape on their rims? What i i put on them to make them look better and that i would be able to change when they start looking ruff again?????

      push rims

      Try using a round file to take burs off

            does that leave a residue when you take it off?

              I use a cheap diamond fingernail file to smooth out the burrs. If you want them to look better, remove all of the paint, and have them lightly sandblasted. Now the dings won't show up as much.

                    Wrapping them in hockey tape might work for you.
