Now the weather has returned to being cold, if your bicycle wants to spend the night inside, you can use a Gripster to protect walls from scratches and scrapes.
However carefully you lean your bike against an inside wall, tell-tale rubber marks and small chips to the plaster or wall paper are hard to avoid. Gripster is a rubber plug that attaches to the end of either a straight or drop handlebar – it helps prevent the bicycle from slipping or leaving marks and other damage.
A built-in magnet allows the Gripster to be stored on a radiator or fridge door when not in use.

Ethical cycle insurance
On the face of it, one cycle insurance policy is much like another, but the devil is the detail. How much excess you will be charged is just one of the things that varies wildly between providers. Another is so called ‘new-for-old’ replacement – many insurers use this term, but if your bicycle is more than a few years old, devalue it severely. This means you are left out of pocket when you come to replace it.
With ETA cycle insurance, however old the bike, if it’s stolen you get enough to buy a new model.
For over 29 years we have been providing this kind of straightforward, affordable bicycle insurance. Little wonder The Good Shopping Guide judges us to be Britain’s most ethical insurance company.
