This leather bicycle handle makes carrying your ride over obstacles, up the stairs, and on the train fast, safe, and easy. Geoffrey Franklin designed the handle with urban commuters in mind, and the simple yet effective design addresses common issues that city bikers encounter. Most riders either hoist their bikes onto their shoulders or pick them up by the top tube, which requires the elbow to bend at an uncomfortable angle. This handle, on the other hand, clips securely above the derailleur and below most water bottle cages, which lowers the rider's center of gravity allowing him or her to lift the bike with a strong, straight arm. By utilizing these powerful muscle groups, the bike is easier to lift, less cumbersome, and easier to stabilize in crowded settings, such as on the bus, train, or subway. Handcrafted by Walnut Studio in Portland, Oregon, out of tanned leather from St. Louis, Missouri, with nickel-plated steel hardware from Ohio.
