For those who prefer to shoulder their bicycle, this unique design provides a sleek and sophisticated solution.

Vegetable-tanned and weatherproof-finished leather wraps are sewn around the top bar and seat tube of your bicycle, creating a padded and comfortable shouldering area.

Whether you’re running up the stairs at the metro or walking through the office, the sturdy leather lets you portage your bicycle with ease.

The Portage Strap comes as a kit with pre-punched stitching holes and a complete sewing kit to fit bicycle frame tubing of 1 1/8" diameter (approximately 2.86 cm).

Available in honey, dark brown, or black to compliment the Brooks saddle colors and your other Walnut Studiolo accessories, the Portage Strap is the perfect combination of beauty and function.

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.
