Six Pack Bicycle Frame Cinch by Walnut Studiolo

ErinBerzelPhotography-4011_1024x1024

The Bicycle Wine Rack is one of our best-selling items at CycleStyle but we realise that not everyone is a wine drinker.

So, we bring you the Six Pack Bicycle Frame Cinch for the beer drinkers!

Honoured by Architizer as one of the Ten Best Bike-related Design Innovations of 2011, this leather frame cinch secures just about anything somewhat narrow to your top tube – such a six-pack of beer, a bike polo mallet, newspaper, umbrella or kayak paddle!

The six-pack rests nicely between your knees (not knocking into them!). 

Each frame cinch has been handmade in Portland, Oregon by leather specialist workshop Walnut Studiolo

Here are some raves about the Six Pack Bicycle Frame Cinch:

We are currently in love with the lunches made by Hello Aubergine, a vegetarian bicycle delivery service run by Pippa Macdonald that delivers once a week in the Fitzroy and Collingwood area.

SONY DSC

Pippa designs the menu weekly, prepares the food and delivers the orders on her vintage bike, her wicker baskets laden with containers offering a vegetarian sandwich or a salad option.

SONY DSC

We’re tried black bean burgers with avocado and mango salsa and coconut rice salad with lychee, cashews, mint and coriander and love the creativity and convenience of Hello Aubergine. Plus of course we love that Pippa runs her business by bike looking very cycle chic!

Hello Aubergine delivers vegetarian lunches in the Fitzroy and Collingwood area on Thursdays. Lunch orders must be placed by 10am on Wednesdays. Call 0432 607 559 or email orders@helloaubergine.com.

Bates Crates for your coffee, pastries and more

Bates Crates are made by hand in Michigan, by one guy, once a month. No two Bates Crates will ever look exactly the same. We think it’s perfect for enjoying summer picnic weather with your bike.

The easiest dress up outfit for New Years Eve festivities must be the classic little black dress. Turn up to your cocktail party in heels on a bike you’ll definitely turn heads!

Where’d you get those shoes?

Platform heels are surprisingly great for cycling – their sturdy bases are good for gripping pedals and they make your legs look loooong.

So we love this promo video from Designer Shoe Warehouse. Where’d you get those shoes?

Shadow Bicycle Rack by Quarterre Studio, England

London’s Quarterre Studio has designed Shadow, a neat bike rack made from a single sheet of folded steel. The bike stand is hand finished with leather trim, creating the perfect area for hanging your helmet.

The wheel slot accommodates most wheel sizes and a high-friction base keeps the bike balanced. A great way to display your bike as art.  

Summer breeze

Doesn’t this picture just make you want to take your bike to the beach and feel the wind on your shoulders?
