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.
