Jump to Bike Tubing Weighting's Construction


Method 1 - Bike Tubing Weighting

Cut your bike tube's valves out, straighten out the tube into a long strip. Take this and tape one end down to the end of one of your tube, then wrap it tightly. Use tape to hold the bike tubing in place. Repeat this for all of the ends of your double staffs.

Putting on the Grip Tape

Find the center of the staff by balancing it on your finger. Mark that point with tape or a marker then take your grip and wrap it on each side of the tape for about a 1' and a half. Use tape, either gaff or electrical to tape down the grip, you may want to do this on both sides of the grip if it is unwrapping.
