Bar tape would have added weight and not been aero.

Ha, all the deliveroo riders round here use old MTBs converted with a motor wheel and a battery gaffer taped onto the frame. They must have a throttle because they do 30kph+ without needing to pedal.

Mind you that home-made one looks kind of dangerous with the multiple batteries wired together.

Eh? The bike's not even built, the brake inners are just hanging loose. I am intrigued by the idea that someone actually makes clip-on drops though.
