Pixellated - perforated half tone skull superimposed over the Union Jack. The brief from Baum Cycles was for some simple bar tape and a saddle design that incorporated a skull and the UK flag. The outcome was a highlight piece for an understated titanium bike.

Selle SMP: Black Vegan with Orange Pavement Pattern

Selle SMP: Black with Red Weave Perforations

Black kangaroo leather with perforations representing the weave pattern on Parlee's carbon fibre lugs. I covered this saddle 8 years ago for a new Parlee through The Cycling Edge. The bike was just in at Shifter Bikes for some upgrades and general tender loving care and Dan asked me to give the saddle a fresh new look. The cover from 8 years ago was a simple black hand dyed kangaroo which had patina'd wonderfully.
