A comfortable, stylish, and sturdy leather strap for portaging your bicycle on your shoulder, whether it's up the stairs or across a river.

Featured on Better Living Through Design! FREE US SHIPPING with coupon code 'GIMME5'.

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.

Hand-made and hand-finished leather comes with choice of white, tan, dark brown, or black waxed thread, strong double-sided tape, and stitch kit with needle, thread, and instructions.

The leather pictured here is dark brown.

"I just put my portage strap on and LOVE it! You guys do a really good job with your package contents...the threaded needle, all ready to go, couldn't have been easier. Plus, it was fun to do. :)
Great job!!"

"Great piece! My shoulder thanks you!"

"I love my new Portage Strap! It looks great with my Brooks saddle and makes it much more comfortable to carry my bike up stairs. It was fun and easy to sew on to the frame as well!"
