City Grips

Old-fashioned sew-on leather grips for your city bicycle handlebars.

Leather is functional and tactile, and it wears beautifully the more it is handled (and it's fine in the rain!).

It gets grippier when wet, and more beautiful with age as the oils in your hand give it a nice patina.

The leather is made with vegetable-tanned leather I finish with a combination process including Walnut Studiolo's weatherproofing dressing.

The leather pictured here is dark brown.

Pre-punched stitching guides along the sides, and comes with choice of white, tan, dark brown, or black waxed thread stitching kit.

THREADS: White, Tan, Dark Brown, Black. Please specify your preferred thread color in the "special instructions" box during checkout, or else we will send our standard selection.
