Bike Chic - Leather Accessories by Walnut
Walnut Studio's Bike Chic Leather Accessories
Now that you have a charming vintage (or vintage-inspired) bicycle, it's time to accessorize. Remember, bikes aren't just for looking sexy. You can also use one for
hitting the liquor store running errands and transporting chocolate bars.
Panniers and saddle bags take the load off your back and put it onto your bike. Your bike chic outfit stays fresher since you're not sweating under a heavy messenger bag.
Bring your whole look together with lovely leather accessories. Portland-based Walnut Studio makes gorgeous pieces. I adore these wood and vegetable-tanned-leather front-rack panniers.
And how cute is this barrel-shaped saddlebag?
Not only does leather help you carry things on your bike, it also helps you carry your bike.
I have a persistent bruise on my right shoulder from carrying my bike up four flights of stairs so I can take selfies on the roof. This bike portage strap would ease the strain and give my princess-like complexion a chance to unbruise.
Walnut's claim to fame is the bicycle can cage. It's the perfect gift for a noob biker who has everything.
Actually a lot of experienced rider have yet to master keeping one hand on the bars and the other around a PBR.
And for those rare times when you're biking to the party (rather than in the party) bottle belts'll secure spare vino to your top tube.
