Emerald City Spin is a short video featuring, you guessed it, Sydney bike riders which has shown in New York to London and Sydney Bike Film Festival.
A bunch of hot and cheeky ladies wake up, get dressed and bike through the streets of the Emerald City to the beach. “Summer daze, bikes and babes, riding round, wearing shades. Feel the breeze, catch a wave, looking hot, like grenades”.
The Bicycle Wine Rack was our best-seller at the Melbourne Design Market last Sunday. The leather and brass contraption drew many admiring glances and our market stock was sold out by lunch time (don’t worry, we have more available online).
For those of you who’ve bought the Bicycle Wine Rack or have it on your wish list, here’s a handy installation video.
Fit The strap is designed to be snug so that when it stretches, it will be the right size and not too loose. The first couple times you put a wine bottle in it it will feel a little snug and the first couple of times you connect and disconnect it from the metal post it will feel a little snug.
Leather Don’t be afraid to rub down the rack with olive oil once a year to keep the leather slightly moist. The material is a vegetable tanned leather that will change in colour and feel depending on how often you use it. It will darken with sunlight significantly.
Clamp The clamping system is meant to be snug enough to keep the leather from moving around. It’s not invisible so don’t tighten the clamp harder than you need to.
We’ve got just the thing for your bike this party season!
If you like wine and you like biking, you’re going to love our new Bicycle Wine Rack. The handmade leather bicycle wine rack is perfect for taking wine with you on the go. It easily attaches to any 1″ bike frame with antique brass fasteners, while the hidden clamps hold the bottle securely. The olive oil-treated vegetable-tanned leather will only look better as it ages.
The Bicycle Wine Rack is in store now for $29. Something for the Christmas stocking, perhaps?
We are big fans of the high quality British workmanship embodied in Carradice’s and Ally Capellino‘s products (we use a Timothy for weekend trips away). The new range is like dream-bag-squared!
If you can’t wait for the new bags to arrive in store (slated for Northern Hemisphere Spring 2012) then some of Ally Capellino‘s current range is suitable for bike riding. Here’s a video showing Frank on a bike.
The Velorbis bicycles are part of a large Velorbis bicycle fleet available for politicians to use for getting to and from meetings at various locations in central Copenhagen. The new government has announced that it will integrate green policies as a main element of their administration in order to make Copenhagen even more bicycle friendly. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
