A comfortable, stylish, and sturdy leather strap for portaging your bicycle on your shoulder, whether it's up the stairs or across a river.
Designed for cyclo-cross racers, this minimalist shoulder strap does the work, padding your shoulder against the awkward bike angle when lifting the bike to carry.
The leather strap wraps around the top bar and seat tube providing a comfortable suspension in between to be supported on your shoulder. The leather wrap on the top bar also gives the bike a nice and convenient handle close to the center of gravity and protects the bike's finish.
Hand-made and hand-finished leather comes with choice of white, tan, dark brown, or black waxed thread, strong double-sided tape, and stitch kit with needle, thread, and instructions.
The leather pictured here is dark brown.
COLORS: Natural, Honey, Dark Brown, or Black
MATERIALS: Vegetable-tanned leather
DIMENSIONS: Appx 13" long by 3 3/4" wide. Fits road frames with 1 1/8" diameter tubing.
