Most of the time when cyclists talk about upgrading their bike, they’re talking about brakes, cassettes, cranksets or derailleurs, but today we’re talking about bling! This is about making your bike reflect your personality, with fun upgrades to make your bike feel uniquely yours.

Custom Headset Caps

Kustom Ventures creates headset caps to replace your bike’s boring cap with cool and colorful designs. These add style to your bike where you notice it the most, as a rider. They range in price from $14.99-$29.99 and are a small upgrade, but one you’ll notice every time you ride.

They even have a cool AI custom cap maker. All you have to do is type in your idea for a design, and AI does the rest. Two art options will be sent to you to choose from.

Kustom Ventures also sell custom valve stem caps, water bottle cage bolts, headset spacers, and bar end caps to create a more complete look.

Frame Wraps

There are several companies that make protective bicycle wraps for your bike’s top tube, downtube, chainstays, and fork, but the ones found on Ground Keeper got my attention the most due to their eye-catching designs.



I especially like the color shifting graphics of some of the Frame Keeper designs. These add some serious bling, but with a professional looking touch. My absolute favorite is the Maze Runner in fire.

They also sell frame, fork, and rim decals, in addition to custom headset caps.

Custom Head Badges

Revolution Cycle combines the art of making jewelry and the love of cycling to create custom head badges for your bike. Several feature designs for Surly bikes, but any design you want for any brand can be commissioned.

These would make a wonderful gift for a cycling enthusiast, or just a way to add some classic bling to your bike. Prices start at around $85.

For a more affordable option, though not as well constructed, you can find aluminum foil stick-on badges at Amazon. Check out some, here. You can also check out Etsy for some more unique designs.



Custom Frame Bags

Another fun and useful way to add style to your bike is to use custom frame bags with eye-catching designs that reflect your personality in a big way. If you search Etsy, you can find quite a few different styles and designs to browse through. Here’s one of my favorites, at the time of writing this article.

Frame bags would also make a great gift!
