Customer Stories: Eco-Friendly & Heavyweight Green Grips – Petal Pink

Hello Derek & Kelley!  Behold the essence of PINK MADNESS!  This is the English Arrow, circa 1980, restored to it’s full & proper glory-due in no small part to your Green Grips Heavyweight handlebar tape in Petal Pink & Natural and your Wooden Cork Bar Plugs! We are looking good!  The Heavyweight tape looks & feels great!  I had forgotten how nice “real” bar tape feels.  The Bar Plugs are that perfect vintage finishing detail.  All is once again right & in balance & as it should be with the world; thanks to you.  It has been a pleasure to get to know you folks in the course of this adventure and to work together with people who share a passion for stylish, and responsible, cycling.

This will be my mount for the Eroica-Paso Robles Gran Fondo on 4-12-15.  The English Arrow monicker derives partly from the native country of frame builder, Colin Laing, who built bikes & had a bike shop in Tucson, Ariz., Laing Cycles, who made this bike & a matching track bike for me in 1980.  These were my first pro-level racing bikes.  Many, many, many miles & memories here, a long & continuing story, of which you & your company are now a part of.  Great to have you along for the ride.  Thanks, again.

 Sincerely,
 Robin Ablin
