Michaux Leather Handlebar Tape

Michaux Leather Handlebar Tape

I’m totally smitten with the leather handlebar tape from Michaux. I recently outfitted my vintage Motobecane with a Brooks honey saddle and think the gold tape would look especially nice alongside it.

Fourth of July Bike Style

Fourth of July Bike Style

I grew up in Northern Michigan, where we spent our 4th of July on the water, biking around the lake and eating and drinking our way through the day. It was one of my favorite days no matter my age, come on, sparklers, water skiing, fireworks and sunshine, it doesn’t get any better. Today I [...]

Bike Shelf by BBD

Bike Shelf by BBD

You might have noticed that I love a simple, well designed apartment bike shelf. As much as I want one, my lovely mixte never works with them – this is why BBD’s Bike All has me super excited. Different from the rest, The Bike All relies on the single component that all bikes share…a saddle [...]
