For those who prefer to shoulder their bicycle, this unique design provides a sleek and sophisticated solution.
Vegetable-tanned and weatherproof-finished leather wraps are sewn around the top bar and seat tube of your bicycle, creating a padded and comfortable shouldering area.
Whether you’re running up the stairs at the metro or walking through the office, the sturdy leather lets you portage your bicycle with ease.
The Portage Strap comes as a kit with pre-punched stitching holes and a complete sewing kit to fit bicycle frame tubing of 1 1/8" diameter (approximately 2.86 cm).
Available in honey, dark brown, or black to compliment the Brooks saddle colors and your other Walnut Studiolo accessories, the Portage Strap is the perfect combination of beauty and function.
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.

LEATHER: Your Walnut Studiolo product uses natural, vegetable-tanned leather and will not look exactly as pictured here. Real, natural leather carries is a natural material, so every hide has unique characteristics that individually personalize each product. Just as no two fingerprints are alike, each piece of leather is distinctive in its color, grain, and markings, which may include scars, mars, or blemishes that are a natural part of the cow's life and a sign of the high quality of the leather we use.
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. The strap on the down tube is 3.5" long and on the top tube is 4.5". Please measure your bike to make sure there is enough room between cable braze-ons, if any, for the 4.5" strap on the top tube.
MONOGRAMMING: Yes! This item can be monogrammed with up to 3 characters. Monogramming can add up to 2 weeks to the turnaround time. Monogram font only available as shown in the last picture to the left, in 1/2" size. We do not have numbers or special characters in our fontset like "&" although we can make a "*" or "+" or "."
