Featured on Better Living Through Design!A comfortable, stylish, and sturdy leather strap for portaging your bicycle, whether it's up the stairs or across a river.Designed for cyclo-cross racers, this minimalist shoulder strap does the work, padding your shoulder against the awkward bike angle when lifting the bike to carry.The leather strap wraps around the top bar and seat tube providing a comfortable suspension in between to be supported on your shoulder. The leather wrap on the top bar also gives the bike a nice and convenient handle close to the center of gravity and protects the bike's finish.Comes in natural/unfinished, a light "honey"/cognac color, dark brown, or black. Hand-made and hand-finished leather comes with choice of white or black waxed thread, strong double-sided tape, and stitching instructions.Fits road frames with 1 1/8" diameter tubing.To see a photo gallery of cute bikes with Portage Straps visit our Flickr page:http://www.flickr.com/photos/47514124@N02/sets/72157627951882775/EACH ITEM IS MADE TO ORDER with love in my workshop in Portland, Oregon.SELECT PRESS:Better Living Through Designhttp://www.betterlivingthroughdesign.com/personal/bike-portage-strap.htmlDyed in Redhttp://dyedinred.blogspot.com/2011/05/bike-portage-strap.htmlSELECT TESTIMONIALS:"Great piece!
