SLR: Whisky & Khaki for a Baum Orbis X

Whisky whip leather recovered Selle Italia SLR saddle with Baum's Nato Green showing through some perforated details. The saddle and matching bar tape will develop a rich patina with use. Justin's Orbis X is certainly a great looking bike. I particularly like the way the colour of the rear drive train cluster almost matches the frame.

Diva Gel Flow: Whisky, Champagne & Coral for a Baum

Selle Italia's Diva saddle presents plenty of complex 3D form to challenge the leatherworker with both pattern making and leather moulding. I really enjoy the challenge of perfecting the template patterns for complex shaped saddles. I try to find the balance between minimising seams and achieving the perfect fit for the saddle. This is Lee's Baum Orbis.
