These belts secure just about anything cylindrical- or bottle-shaped to your bike's top tube - a wine bottle, a bundle of kindling, a rolled up beach towel, and more.
The belt folds over the top tube and through itself with origami-like grace and ensures a tight fit supported by the weight of the bottle.
It has a snug fit on both 1" and 1 1/8" tubing. Adjustable buckles with multiple buckle holes hold the bottle tight in place.
When unfolded, these straps can be used separately or together to fasten objects to your racks.
The top-quality bridle leather strap is adjustable to hold variably sized bottles. Holds as large as a 40oz Kleen Kanteen (11" circumference) down to a 22oz beer size (9" circumference). Perfect for wine bottles (extra-curvy champagne bottles not recommended).
I designed these and my other leather bicycle accessories to be functional, durable, and beautiful for your bicycle. I test out all my products on my own bike commutes for several weeks prior to listing.
An informal poll on our Facebook page came up with a lot of great names for this product: Flagon Wagon Cummberbunds, the Grapes of Strap, Velo Vino, Boozer Cruiser, Vin de Velo, Hermetage Harness, Vino A-Go-Go, Cork Carrier, Wine Spine, Terroir Tighteners.
This listing is for one pair of two belts -- please note that it takes both belts to secure the bottle to your bike.
Not recommended for us on women's/mixte frames with diagonal top tubes. It works best on a top tube that is parallel to the ground.

SELECT PRESS AND TESTIMONIALS:
"Such a great product idea! For the wino bicycle rider in all of us ;) Lovely leather. Beautiful craftsmanship! Thanks so much! :)"
We carry a small stock of most of our items and most color combinations, and can get most items into the mail within 1-3 business days. However, we still do make some of our items to order. Please note, hand-stitched items and monogrammed items generally take longer.
If you have a particular need to get this on a certain time frame, please email me at email@example.com. If I can't make your time frame, I will apologize, and cancel your order and refund your payment, if you'd like us to.
DOMESTIC SHIPPING INFORMATION:
We offer shipping options using the US Postal Service and FedEx. If USPS does not recognize your address for whatever reason, we will write to request an alternate address to prevent the item from being shipped and returned. If you would like a different shipping option, or have a particular delivery deadline, please call at 503-447-6889 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can talk about the options and costs.
IMPORTANT INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENT INFORMATION:
We offer shipping options using DHL International Express and International First Class Post. Using DHL will guarantee your delivery in 2-3 days with tracking information. Using the Post will save you money on shipping, but this service has no tracking information once it leaves the USA, and it can take anywhere from 1-7 weeks. Once it leaves the USA, it changes control to your country's postal service. There are often hang-ups in customs, usually about VAT and import tax collection, that can delay the package once it leaves the USA. In my experience, it has taken anywhere from 5 days to 3 months to arrive.
If you are worried about the timeframe of your package, please email us! We may recommend upgrading shipping or canceling the order if we cannot get it to you in time. Once the package has left the USA, we recommend you take the tracking number into your local post office to get tracking updates. If they don't have any information about it, and it's been over 6 weeks, then we'll call it a lost package and file an insurance claim to replace it.
Please note that we do not collect international import taxes or VAT taxes on your behalf - when your package arrives, your country may charge you additional taxes on the order. We cannot reimburse you for your country's import taxes. If you are concerned about the cost of these taxes, please check with your local country's customs office to find out how much they are - they could easily be as much as 20-30% of the purchase price. If this changes your mind on the order, please let us know and we'd be happy to cancel it for you and refund your money in full.

We take returns of undamaged items for any reason. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you're not satisfied with your purchase, let me know why, and I'll either work with you to find a satisfactory resolution, or you may return it and I'll provide a refund. I'm sorry, but we cannot offer refunds or exchanges on custom-designed or monogrammed products. So far, an exceptionally small number of items have come back, and I work hard to keep it that way.
