velcroed tube cover

Does anyone know of a source of velcroed tube cover of the sort used on BMX bike cross bars but longer (up to 2 metres)? size to round 3inch diameter tube? Made of nylon or cordura or preferably thin neoprene for stretchiness?

Halfords and some specialist cycling shops do lines of velcroed tube covers. May be worth having a look :D

Failing that, it one of your neighbours' kids gets a bike for his birthday, nick the trims when he's not looking :wink:

My son works at Bikus in Bovey tracey and reckons if you email them with what you want, they can order them in

When I was looking around my workshop today I saw some nylon hydraulic hose protector about 3 inch diameter. It is made by a company called Pirtek, they call it a textile sleeve Part no. TEXS-N where n is the diameter, it is made in different diameters, is light weight very strong & could possibly be what you are looking for? It is available from most hydraulic hose service companies The only down side is, it is made as a long tube length with no Velcro join. But B&Q sell Velcro by the metre. Get your sewing machine out & hey presto! Just the thing to help pass this rainy spell.

I know a guy who works for Pirtek.

You are talking about the Hydralic protector if not mistaken....

I cadged a small bit a while back.


I have a sewing machine :-)

Pick your fabric and away you go.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Some good ones there.

I went with the Seat belt covers and car seat covers and sewed on the velcro.

The results will be on display at the Nats!!!!! and plenty photos...
