SMP Dynamic: Curve

Saint Cloud is building up a Curve titanium bike for a customer and asked me to rework a SMP test saddle in Brandy kangaroo leather with some Curve chevrons in the design.

It has been a very busy couple of weeks finishing up so many jobs before I head off to Turkey for a very much needed summer break. Back in late September.

Specialized Romin Evo Pro: Bastion Weave

Gold grid perforation highlights take reference from the bold weave pattern on the Bastion Cycle's carbon fibre tubes.

Fizik Aliante R3 Set: Speedvagen Horizon

A full set to compliment the saddle including frame pump strap, two piece saddle bag and handlebar tape. All completely hand made by me in kangaroo leather and cow for the tape. Hand made means every stitch is made by hand as well. This set is for a Speedvagen Horizon of matching colours.

SMP 209 Lite: Argonaut Turquoise

Selle San Marco Concor Profil: Printed Leather

Glen came to me with a piece of leather printed to match the paintwork on his 1980 Colnago Superissimo. He asked me to cover this Concor Profil and make some stitch on bar wrap as well as some fully perforated wrap from the white bits for his other bike. Now he's just waiting on some gold plated bolts.

Mr Jen often ride across Saint John's Bridge in his home town of Portland, Oregon. Now he can do it in real style with his coordinating saddle, bar tape, saddle bag, mini pump strap and Busyman bar end caps.
