photo: Spurlo

It was a pleasure to be involved in the Melbourne's Rapha Womens Prestige a few weeks ago. Checkpoints along the route included my studio where very rider helped prepare the leather for this custom saddle and bar tape by punching some holes and adding some colour. They had come directly from Bastion Cycles workshop where each group mixed their team colour and splashed the paint all over the Bastion Frame and Curve forks and rims.

Graded grid perforation details in light blue on a pale natural kangaroo leather Fizik Antares.

Selle San Marco Regal: Natural Blue Colnago

For a Colnago restoration project by Service Course Cyclery. Natural vegetable tanned kangaroo leather saddle and cow leather bar tape with light metallic blue perforated detail. The perforated lines on the saddle are taken from the saddle details on my Kumo and suggest a reference to an old sprung mattress saddle. Over time the patina and tan colour should develop beautifully on these pieces.

S-Works Romin saddle with natural kangaroo leather cover and light blue metallic perforation detail. Two piece saddle bag to match (also in kangaroo leather) and cow leather bar tape. For Anthony's new Cinelli Laser Mia.
