After you’ve rung in 2013 and sipped the last bit of bubbly from your flute, hang onto the Champagne corks. As shown above, you can give them a second life as handlebar end plugs, adding an elegant hint of vintage flair to your drop bars. Whittling the corks down with a penknife for the proper fit? It’s a contemplative pursuit that’ll help you meditate on your resolutions.

Happy New Year, with warm thanks for reading, and best wishes for miles of JOYful and safe cycling in 2013!
